We can always use your help!
There are many ways to get involved with WPBP.
Every week before our mailing we sort through hundreds of book donations, keeping what we can to send out, putting some on our Used book sale shelves and selling the others to Half Price books. We are looking for volunteers with a car and a strong back who would be willing to stop by on a Sunday between 1 and 3pm to take a load of books to Half Price. The money that we get from selling the books goes directly back into postage costs.
We have a lot of forms, resource guides, and special information packets that need to be copied. We need folks who can make free copies through their employer or else donate the time and money to copy these forms. If you can assist, email firstname.lastname@example.org with Volunteer Copies in the subject.
Other volunteer opportunities include soliciting donations from publishers and organizations, and opening letters from women in prison to screen for special situations and requests. We also always welcome help with tasks like fundraising, building bookshelves, and translating letters in Spanish. If you have time and energy, we can find a way to help you contribute to WPBP.
If you or a group you are involved in would like to organize a fundraiser for WPBP, or organize a special book mailing/presentation for your organization, please contact us. If you or your organization wishes to hold a book drive for WPBP, please contact us.
