They also have a need for 2 book carts (the kind you see at libraries). If you can help with either of these donations, please email the Respect Life Office at email@example.com.
Packages of Mercy...Aiding the Cornerstone Builders’ Reentry Program by providing care packages to those who have just been released from prison & have no family. The care packages should include things like men's toiletries, razors, towels, new undergarments, & other basic items, plus a note of encouragement. Email the Respect Life Office firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Our spiritual work of mercy tied to a corporal work of mercy involves both a prayer commitment & outreach. We have organized the means to become a spiritual friend/pen pal to one who is in prison right now…Messages of Mercy. This will be an opportunity to provide direct encouragement to someone who very much needs it. Your identity & the identity of the prisoner will be protected. If you are interested in joining this commitment please email the Respect Life Office at email@example.com
