New York City: Books Through Bars


We are Group 4 in Professor Yonkers Conference and Group Leadership course at the University at Albany. The members of our group are: Celia Balf, Ajon Crump, Zach Cook, Janice Johnson, Camy Liang and Olivia O’Neil. We are all communications majors or minors at The University at Albany who have come together to organize a book drive through the Student Association on campus. Individually we have challenged ourselves to collect four books to donate to the book drive which will eventually be given to the Books Through Bars organization.

Mission Statement: We are working with The University at Albany Student Association to organize a book drive in which we will encourage the university community to donate as many books as possible to then donate to New York City’s Books Through Bars, where they donate books to prisoners throughout the nation.

Ajon Crump is the Director of Programming for the Student Association. She has been in contact with SA to help us organize a campus wide book drive where we can gather a large amount of books to then donate to Books Through Bars in New York City. The book drive is open to the public for donation until April 24th. The Student Association will donate the collected books to Books Through Bars by April 28th.This book drive is a way for our group to look beyond the classroom for help. It encourages the local community to participate in something greater, which in this case is the Books Through Bars Organization.
