The Montgomery chapter of the Public Relations Council of Alabama (PRCA) is joining forces with Aid to Inmate Mothers (AIM) to increase the community’s awareness of the AIM organization and its purpose – to assist incarcerated mothers and their children after leaving prison.
The second partnership project will be to build on AIM’s Storybook program through our “Storybook Drive.” Each month, members of our chapter will journey to Julia Tutwiler Prison for Women to help digitally record the women incarcerated there reading stories to their children. The DVD and the storybook read in it are then sent to the child. For many children, this is their only contant with their monther while she is incarcerated. To help with this important ongoing project, PRCA is hosting a special Storybook Drive to collect children's books and monetary donations during the months of March and April. New or gently used books for all age ranges are needed. Paperback or lightweight books are preferred to save on mailing costs.
Drop off locations include the Montgomery Area Visitor Center in downtown Montgomery, the United Methodist Children’s Home at 3140 Zelda Court and the Hampstead Public Library Branch in East Montgomery.
PRCA members are excited about this partnership with AIM to continue in the promotion of the organization’s mission.
For more information or to get involved, contact Tiffany Bell, Vice President of Projects for PRCA at 334-462-2747 or email her here.
PRCA - Montgomery is a proud supporter of K.A.R.M.A.
Our chapter is partnering with Jessica Brookshire, founder of KARMA (Kids. Against. Ridicule. Meanness and Aggression) to help her kick off her campaign to educate children/parents of child bullying within today’s school systems. Jessica is an outstanding young lady who is a grad student at Auburn University and wishes to attend the University of Alabama Law School next year, so, she needs all the help she can get to spread the word.
As Public Relations and communications practitioners, we will be taking on many tasks including design work, writing and public information just to name a few. This will be a major project that will count this year and in 2011 for our chapter awards entry.
Being the “spear head” chapter, we have the chance to spread Jessica’s message throughout Alabama and among our neighboring states.
