VOLUNTEERS FOR HANCOCK JAIL RESIDENTS (VHJR)
Jail Library Volunteers Needed
Volunteers for Hancock Jail Residents (VHJR), a nonprofit social service group founded in 2001 to offer programs at the Ellsworth jail, has a few opening for volunteers in the jail library.
A new volunteer should be available two hours once each month on a Saturday starting at noon. Volunteers work in teams of two people distributing books to incarcerated men and women at the jail. Volunteers report that assisting with the library is important and satisfying work.
VHJR’s Judy Garvey looks forward to hearing from community members who wish to volunteer. “It’s an easy but essential service,” she says. “A person need only give two hours a month to make a difference in people’s lives.”
