FAQ for the P2P Book Drive
This has been an amazing month of rallying around the cause of giving life, hope, salvation, and prayers to prisoners. It’s been fun getting back into the swing of things, and even more eventful rallying others to hop on board. I’ve been getting asked a lot of questions about the Book Donation Drive, so I decided to place all of my answers here. If this blog doesn’t answer your question(s), feel free to shoot me a message and I’ll get it answered for you!
FAQ for the Book Donation Drive for Pens to Prison
How does it work?
The short answer is – You buy. It ships.
The long answer is - Prison systems are quirky with a lot of rules and regulations (as you can imagine). The ones we’ve connected with require an invoiced package, particular shipping and it made out to the prisoner (no detail remitting) so that it can be processed, verified, and cleared before entering the prison. Other prisons require that the book filter through the initial system and the chaplaincy system before being processed to receive by the prisoner. We’ve done the work of creating a system that meets all the checkpoints and will be good to go to reach the hands of prisoners. So back to the short version – You buy. It ships.

Yes! I can accept PayPal or Zelle if you’re more comfortable with that purchase option.
