Help improve the lives of men and women in prison and empty your over-crowded bookcases. Do two good things at once by taking part in our annual Prison Book Ministry drive!
In 2014 Holy Trinity shipped to libraries at Stateville Correctional Center for men in Joliet and Fox Valley Adult Transition Center for women in Aurora a total of 18 boxes of books--an estimated 630 books, weighing 540 pounds. This year we are adding as a recipient the hospice program at Dixon Correctional; for this site, uplifting fiction and nonfiction and inspirational books are appropriate.
How To Help Out
Plan to bring your used books to HTLoop or Holy Trinity Lakeview during these dates: Sat/Sun May 2/3, 9/10, 16/17. NOTE that we also need shipping boxes (size of printer paper box or smaller).
