  • Promotion beginning with

    video/testimonies/posters in place (more content than “Save the date”

    announcements); announce sign-up period; distribute list of available projects

Project Idea — (for

seniors) Write letters to persons incarcerated in local jail

  • Obtain permission and do’s

    and don’ts for such letter writing from sheriff or warden

  • Obtain names of

    incarcerated two days prior to Inasmuch so your list is as up-to-date as


  • Gather volunteers in a

    home or at church day of Inasmuch. Letters should be hand-written

    pictures from children, Bible verses, written prayers (perhaps prepared by

    different volunteers)
