Helping Organizations That Help Federal Prisoners

A friend and colleague forwarded me an e-mail from Prisoner Visitation and Support, asking if I’d post it here. I’m happy to do it:


Dear friends of PVS:

Attached is our year-end fund appeal, which we hope you will respond to.

2012 has been a challenging year for PVS. We hired a 3rd Visitor Recruiter to better cover finding new prison visitors across the U.S. With this new Recruiter comes the need to increase our income to pay for this person

. Our goal is to double our visitor network. PVS visits in 90 of the federal and military prisons, but there are still 28 federal prisons and one military prison where we don’t have any visitors.

Please consider making a year-end donation to PVS. Besides sending us a donation via the mail, you can also donate to PVS online by going to our website: www.prisonervisitation.org

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Eric Corson

PVS Executive Director

P.S.: If you know of people who might be interested in donating to PVS or in visiting for PVS, please let us know.

Other groups meriting consideration for donation dollars (or time) include Families Against Mandatory Minimums (FAMM), which co-authored the recent “compassionate release” report and which is fortunate to have a generous donor who is matching contributions it receives through month’s end dollar-for-dollar; Citizens United for Rehabilitation of Errants (C.U.R.E.) and its federal chapter, FedCURE; the Aleph Institute; and the Prison Legal News (PLN).
