Thank You

Our work would not be possible without the support of dedicated donors and volunteers. We truly appreciate your time and generosity. While there are too many groups and individuals to capture them all here, we would especially like to thank the following:
 
Foundry United Methodist Church
Foundry United Methodist generously provides free space for BtP to house donated books and to fill prisoners’ requests.  In addition, Foundry’s missions program helps support BtP by assisting in fundraisers and providing volunteers.
 
Washington DC Jewish Community Center
Every month, DCJCC volunteers come to BtP to fulfill prisoners' requests. Some volunteers referred by DCJCC come almost every week and even bring book donations!
 
Library of Congress
The amazing Surplus Book Program at the Library of Congress sends books the Library no longer needs to library collections, including prison libraries, around the world. BtP is proud to participate in that program.
 
Barnes & Noble
During the 2011-2015 holiday seasons, BtP volunteers giftwrapped customer purchases at the Barnes and Noble in downtown DC.  Barnes and Noble donated space and gift wrapping supplies and allowed BtP to keep all donations.
 
Library Friends
The Friends of the Cleveland Park Library group has generously donated many books in our most-needed categories, especially paperback dictionaries and how-to-draw books. Friends of the Potomac Public Library now gives us boxes of books from their book sale every month.  Friends of Mt Pleasant Public Library is another stalwart supporter.  We also receive donations of books from the Friends of George Mason Regional Library in Annandale and the Friends of the Tysons-Pimmit Regional Library in Falls Church.
 
Books for America
Books for America, a DC based non-profit, promotes literacy and life-long learning by distributing donated books to organizations serving disadvantaged communities and individuals.   Books for America generously donates books to BtP.
 
One Brick DC
One Brick, a 100% volunteer-run organization, brings volunteers together to support other non-profit organizations.  Every other month, One Brick volunteers join BtP to fulfill prisoners' requests.
 
 
We are grateful to many other groups and individuals who have contributed labor, books, and/or postage money. We are grateful for every contribution, whether it's a single dictionary or a truckload of books, a sheet of postage stamps or a $1000 check, a one-time contribution or a weekly commitment. Together, these contributions allow BtP to serve thousands of prisoners and change lives.
