Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Books for Prisoners, a Seattle-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster a love of reading behind bars, encourage the pursuit of knowledge and self-empowerment, and break the cycle of recidivism. As one of the largest and oldest prison book projects in the country, Books to Prisoners works in partnership with other groups that support prisoner literacy and promote social justice. Though our headquarters are in Seattle, we have two associate organizations – Portland Books To Prisoners and Books To Prisoners Olympia – who offer opportunities for volunteers and donors outside of Seattle.
