This fall, CDCR staff and the population donated food for the hungry, clothes to kids, and got people on their feet again.

The help ranged from traditional fund-raisers to knitting and other services. One incarcerated man even donated his hair to children undergoing treatment for cancer.

At Calipatria State Prison, pizza sales by incarcerated persons raised more than $23,000 for local charities, for example.

At Central California Women’s Facility (CCWF), members of the prison’s population knitted almost 5,000 items for needy children.

Here is a round-up of recently published articles showing how this fall, CDCR staff and incarcerated donated to help the community:
