Caring Gesture

Inmates’ project helps kids in foster care

February 24, 2014
Parkersburg News and Sentinel

Children in West Virginia's foster care system received an extra measure of support last week from a place one might not expect. Inmates at St. Marys Correctional Center designed and made more than 500 bags in which kids can pack their belongings. Female inmates at Lakin Correctional Center made and donated more than 500 blankets. Nonprofit group Mission West Virginia gratefully accepted the donation from approximately two dozen inmates in St. Marys, who had a very good reason for taking on the project.
