I assisted Books for Prisons with the cleanup of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) fall book sale at one of the local malls. Part of the work consisted of separating the trade paper back books and other soft bound books from the hard backed books. The great thing was that BFP went the extra mile to get special trays that would fit the soft bound books so that the books could be easily transported to the local county jail to be used in the jails literacy program.

The Great!

I have personally experienced the results of this organization by being part of the team effort to help unwanted book reach people that can use them and need them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would get more volunteers to help with the physical labor that was required to sort, pack, and move over 6,000 books in about 3 hours to clear the mall.

More feedback...

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

A lot

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

Definitely

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Have more volunteers for the large activies.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

It helped me to understand that there is much more to volunteer activities than just showing up and just standing around waiting for someone to tell you to do something. There is a very lot of planning before and after the event.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

I felt very good about the work that Books for Prisons is doing to redirect unwanted books away from the landfill sites.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
