MCYAF is working with an Eagle Scout on a book drive for Logan Correctional Center, a women's prison in Illinois in Park Ridge. Fiction and non-fiction books from middle school to adult reading levels on all topics except for true crime. I found out magazines are being accepted too. National Geographic, news magazines, women's magazines, self-help, etc. There is a drop-off box at Door #3 on the circle at Maine South. Did you know a majority of women in prison are there for drug and alcohol related felonies and that most of them have 3 children or more. If we can help educate the moms, hopefully they will pass that on to their children. Break that circle!
