Dare to Care: Volunteer Books to Prisons Project

Monday, April 28, 2014, 6:30 PM
Foundry United Methodist Church
(1500 16th St, NW, DC)

Cost: Free

Come volunteer alongside your fellow alumni and help fulfill the Books to Prisons' mission of adding humanity to the lives of people who are incarcerated.

Since 1999, DC Books to Prisons Project has provided free books to prisoners around the country, as well as develop and support local prison libraries. Yearly, they send out 2,000 to 4,000 packages to prisoners in 150 different prisons in all 50 states. As a group we will help to read prisoner letters, pick out books, and get them ready to mail. Thanks for supporting DC Blue Hen volunteer efforts!

Special thanks to the UD Alumni Association for their support of this event.

Want to volunteer?

Join a Committee
The UD DC Alumni Club is growing and we need your help! For those of you that want to help but don't have a lot of time, we've created two committees: the Social Committee and the University Committee. The Social Committee will help plan and run happy hours, game watches, cultural and similar events. The University Committee will help with our new community service and other UD engagements.

Committees are the easiest way to bring new ideas to the club as our membership is rapidly growing. If you have an interest, please email alumnet@udel.edu.

Join the Club Committee
