Welcome to Soul Passages: A Book Club  

Community Services

 

Soul Passages has incorporated community service as a part of its mission. We donated school supplies to a village in Ghana, West Africa, to a Hartford prison ministry, and to the CRT book buddy program. It has provided financial support to the African American Heritage Museum of Southern New Jersey; to the Civil Rights Museum, Memphis, TN; to the Eastville Community Historical Society of Sag Harbor; and to Tougaloo College and families affected by Hurricane Katrina. Soul Passages: A Book Club received the Community Service Award from the National Book Club Conference in 2005.
