The NV-CURE Book Drive for ESP was completed on 4/2/16. The Icelady brought the books she gathered in the North down to William in Vegas. William combined them with the books-gather in Vegas. Laurie drove the books to Ely and delivered the books (13 boxes of paperback books) the Associate Warden at ESP.
Congratulations people and a big that you for the help – particularly to Icelady, William and Laurie. Good job done. The guys in solitary, and those who are forced to share a cell with another man for long hours per day, will appreciate them.
Our next goal for our book drive will be the women’s prison, FMWCC.
