CSP-Sacramento donated $5,000 to Stand Up Placer.

When California State Prison, Sacramento, (SAC) donates to Stand Up Placer, the act benefits the incarcerated and the community.

Stand Up Placer provides comprehensive services to Placer County survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and their families. Their mission is “saving lives by empowering survivors and educating communities to stand up to domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking.”

Following pandemic guidelines, the incarcerated population successfully raised nearly $8,400 from food sales in the final months of 2021. A portion of all proceeds from each sale goes to local charities chosen by the population.

In addition to Stand Up Placer, other local charities benefiting from this round of SAC food sales included Boys and Girls Club of Sacramento and Make-A-Wish.
