The Stony Point Center ― a national conference center of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) ― is asking people to donate 2013 calendars for a project to help prisoners ‘mark time’ while they are incarcerated.

Stony Point is participating in the Alternatives to Violence Project’s (AVP) annual calendar drive. AVP coordinates a number of conflict resolution programs in prisons.

AVP and its partners, like Stony Point, collects the calendars and then sends them to prisoners who can use them to keep track of days.

“Any calendars will do,” Stony Point officials say, “either an extra one you were given or those that come for free through the mail as promotion for organizations and companies.”

AVP suggests that we avoid calendars with metal spiral binding, but staples are okay.

Donated calendars can be sent to Stony Point Center, c/o Calendar Bridge Project, 17 Cricketown Road, Stony Point, NY 10980.
