DVDs for Women’s Jail

Zen Center is collecting DVDs for the Women’s Jail.

They must be in good, useable condition and not feature extreme violence. These films are for entertainment, so all genres are welcome. Please either bring your contributions to the City Center office, or just leave them in the wooden box marked for prison book donations in the City Center lobby.

To contact the Outreach Department with comments or questions, you can either email outreach@sfzc.org or phone 415-354-0379.

Thank you for your support.
