Knowledge to Rehabilitate
Description
Have school books from last semester? Want to put them to good use? Donate them to the Door County Justice Center Community Learning Program. Send your SOFT COVER student, and teacher, gently used textbooks to:
Door County Justice Center
C/o Community Learning Program
1203 S. Duluth Ave
Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235
These books will go towards the community learning program held within the confines of the jail. The texts are studied freely by the rehabilitating inmates. All varieties and subjects are welcome, including fiction and nonfiction literature, science, math, social studies, civics, business, psychology, economics, etc. Help expand the minds and horizons of a group of our population far too often relegated to the shadows. Help someone help themselves through the gifts of learning and self reliance. Orders off services such as Amazon are accepted as well. These donations may be tax deductible!
An initial thank you to Northeast Wisconsin Technical College for their support in our GED/HSED program for inmates! Without their generous support through excellent instructors like Jennifer Eaton, to their providing custom rebinding of college level dictionaries for our class (Soft covers only!), we wouldn't be able to help so many members of our community take steps to better themselves.
Thanks to everyone who has supported this program, and please help spread the idea that knowledge can help rehabilitate!
