Volunteer Spotlight: Sandy Carey

Meet Sandy Carey, a literacy champion with a heart of gold! 📚❤️

With 28 years of teaching experience and a deep love for reading, Sandy was deeply moved when she discovered the Women’s Storybook Project through her church.

Since 2011, she’s volunteered in six prisons, and during the pandemic, she continued her mission through Storybook’s mail-in program. As in-person visits resumed, Sandy became a co-leader, providing vital support to incarcerated mothers. Soon after, she assumed the role of a team leader and had the honor of being among the first to visit the Crain Unit.

Sandy finds joy in the appreciation she receives from the mothers and their resilience in tough circumstances. She believes that making a difference can be simple and hopes to inspire others to join her.

Beyond her work with WSP, Sandy is a member of the P.E.O Sisterhood and a volunteer chaplain at St. David’s Hospital for 16 years. In her free time, she enjoys singing, reading, golf, yoga, and treasured moments with her grandchildren.

Join Sandy in spreading the joy of reading and supporting incarcerated mothers through Women’s Storybook Project.
