2017 Valentine’s Packathon

WHEN: Saturday February 11, 10AM-7PM

WHERE: A-Space (4722 Baltimore Ave.)

WHAT: This Valentine’s Day weekend, come spread a different kind of love – help us send packages to all the incarcerated folks waiting for books!

Volunteers will be reading letters, matching people’s requests with books from our library, and/or wrapping up the books into packages. You can drop in at any time, there will be Packathon hosts to show you what to do if you are new! There will also be snacks and probably music.

If you want to come with a group of 4 or more people, please e-mail us at info@booksthroughbars.org so that we can accommodate you in our limited space. Like all Books Through Bars packing sessions, this is an 18+ event.

HELP US FUNDRAISE: Our goal is to send 600 packages over the course of 10 hours. At an average of $5 per package in postage and supplies, mailing 600 packages will cost BTB of upwards of $3000 before we even include overhead costs. Help us make this happen!

Check out our crowdrise fundraiser – you can make a donation yourself, or start your own fundraising team. E-mail us at info@booksthroughbars.org if you have any questions.

SPREAD THE WORD: Invite your friends to the Packathon on Facebook!
