California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison (SATF) recently teamed up with the Mount Tamalpais College to show appreciation and support for staff and the incarcerated population during the COVID-19 pandemic.
All SATF’s incarcerated population received care packages containing soap, toothpaste, writing material, writing pencils, envelopes, some nutritional food items and informational material. SATF staff distributed the care packages to all facilities.
SATF staff were also offered meals from two food trucks – Tropic Truck and Pinch of Flavor – both from the Los Angeles area. The trucks arrived early and were ready to serve meals for the first, second, and third watches.
One SATF staff member said, “Look at everyone in line. We really needed this after everything that is going on. Please tell everyone thank you so much.”
One incarcerated person wrote a letter to the Warden (A) Theresa Cisneros.
“I personally would like to thank you and your staff for the good things you are allowing to happen for us here in quarantine. The package from Mount Tamalpais College, is a true blessing,” the letter stated.
