This month's featured non-profit is Friends of Guest House. Since its founding in 1974, Guest House has helped more than 3,000 women break the vicious cycle of incarceration, reunite with their families, and reintegrate into their communities. Learn more at friendsofguesthouse.org. Needed items include composition notebooks, colored pencils, Alcoholics Anonymous books, Narcotics Anonymous books, and womens' cotton underwear (sizes small-XL). Donations can be dropped off at the Pat Miller Neighborhood Square on Thursday from 6pm to dusk.
