Pittsburgh, PA 15224
DESCRIPTION
Book‘Em is a non-profit organization based in Pittsburgh that sends reading and educational materials to prisoners across Pennsylvania. Our mission is to turn the time served in prison into a period of growth and education. With diminished budgets for under-stocked prison libraries, organizations such as ours are often the only means prisoners have of obtaining literary or reading material. We believe that educating individuals during incarceration is an integral part of rehabilitation. By using the time in prison to prepare for re-entry into society, ex-offenders will have a greater chance at living a productive life and be less likely to revert to a criminal lifestyle.
