Book Drive for Inmates

Monday, 24 January 2011
My goal for a book drive was 50 books. I volunteered to collect used and new non-fiction books for Friends of Literacy. That's the charity I'm involved in that helps adults learn to read and take the GED so they can become employable. The books are for inmates at the Knox County Detention Center.

The grand total for the book drive, while not fabulous, was 58 books, 8 more than my goal. Organizing the drive wasn't that difficult and I was able to spend my free time working on something that is very important to me. Without books and the ability to read, I would be lost. Hopefully at least one incarcerated person is inspired by something they read from the books we collected.
