MTC volunteers delivering Covid-19 care packages to Avenal State Prison

Care Packages Delivered to Avenal State Prison

By Mount Tamalpais College | July 14, 2020

In early July, the Prison University Project distributed care packages to the incarcerated population of Avenal State Prison. Each one was packed in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag, filled with beef jerky, tuna fish, trail mix, a bar of soap, a small pad of paper, envelopes, stamps, pens (or pen fillers, for those in housing units where regular pens are not allowed), and three articles. We also included a letter that explained the package.

We previously delivered packages to the incarcerated population of San Quentin, and their letters in response are available here.

If you are interested in contributing to future care package deliveries, please visit our fundraising page.

Please note that the Prison University Project became Mount Tamalpais College in September 2020.
