Storybook Volunteers Needed

You may have heard of the Aunt Mary's Storybook Project through which children of incarcerated people at various county jails receive a new book and a recording of their parent reading the story to them. You have thought that this was a special program. You are invited to help. Specifically, we are looking for several people to go with us in to the Sheridan Correctional Center in Sheridan, Illinois either once a month or twice a month to help participants choose their books and to assist with the recording sessions. For more information, or to sign up, please contact us.

We need books for children of incarcerated parents. Please consider doing a book drive for Companions! Go to Resources and see how you can help!
