Peace be unto you.

I am writing to you on behalf of Washington Corrections Center (WCC) and all of the religious organizations represented here at prison. And again we find ourselves in great need. As the primary receiving institution for the men in the Washington State Prison System, our population is diverse and temporary, in that most inmates stay in this facility less than three months before a assignment to permanent institution.

While imprisoned many of these men find strength and renewed faith while reading the Materials on Krishna and other Krishna material. We provide Krishna material for men who are in need. And with an ever-growing Krishna population. Will you please make a donation of Materials on Krishna and other Krishna materials so that we can continue to provide our Krishna population with materials to strengthen their faith.

We are also in great need of volunteers to support and assist with our religious programs of all faiths. Will you please share need with other organizations that may be able to provide Volunteer services, assistance, or support? We would also appreciate any addresses or website information you would recommend.

Thank you for your donation,

Chaplain Joe T. Portugal
