Due to circumstances beyond our control, Appalachian Pagan Ministry will need to suspend visits until September. Rev Donna has family issues to still be addressed, and Rev Teresa has health issues to take care of. Honestly, we just need to take a small break and get rest and finances up. We will cancel this months visits and August’s, and will resume in September. I will send an email to all this week with those dates.
Thank you for your understanding.
Appalachian Pagan Ministry”
This is the email I sent to the Chaplains at the beginning of July. We had already cancelled the prison trips for June, as Ms Teresa had some health issues to deal with, and Rev Donna had some family issues to deal with. Those we serve behind the walls have been very understanding.
Another reason for the break is financial. As this ministry grows in the number we serve, so too, does the financial burden to do so. The amount of material requested by those incarcerated in various jails and prisons across the country has more then tripled in amount. We will be going to 4 more prisons monthly starting in September. All of this increases our expenses.
You can help APM in various ways, however financially is the way we truly do need right now. You can donate directly by clicking the “Donate” button here on the site, via PayPal to www.paypal.me/sendustoprison , via CashApp to $APMtoPrison or by CC directly (just message us) .
We will also be at various fests this month (please see calendar) where we will have several donated items to be purchased. Thank you for all of you who continue to support APM and the work that we do. Thank you.
