Prisoners doing good for others

HFP Client Leo Carmona tells us about a hobby-craft project at Lakeland CF: “The volunteer program initially began with prisoners crocheting hats for children with cancer. So many of us pumped out hats so quickly, that we were asked to make baby blankets and small afghans as well.” Leo sends this photo of prisoners and women from the Jackson Chapter of the Lion’s Club, who actually distributed the items. Said Leo: “While we understand that recognition is certainly not the point of charitable works, we want people to know that prisoners do have compassion, empathy, and love for those who struggle in our communities.”
