Incarcerated population donate bears to women and children’s hospital
The incarcerated population on Facility A at California State Prison, Los Angeles County (LAC), aimed to make a difference in a child’s life by donating 200 bears to the Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital in Long Beach.
Family and friends of the incarcerated, along with Lt. Karla Graves and Associate Warden T. Lewandowski, were on hand for the delivery of the bears.
Incarcerated artist Michael Webb, who is involved in the Arts in Corrections program, was inspired. He painted a bear, dubbing it “Hope.” The portrait was gifted and is now displayed at the hospital.
