Hospitals and Institutions Report
Eight orders were shipped to several different states. There was one large order sent to a corrections facility in Boston, MA, which required board approval to go over the monthly H&I committee budget of $50.00. There had been six other orders also, making it necessary to spend more for the H&I committee than usual.
Regular mail continues to come in from various prisons, especially in California, requesting the BRB. These inmates have gotten word from someone else in the prison about ACA and the BRB, and they believe they could benefit from the materials also.
There was some difficulty in May with three orders being returned from prisons and a jail as not having a correct return address or the jail would not allow the book to be given to the inmate who requested it.
