Prison Inmates Make Gifts

Prison Inmates Make Gifts
PIERRE, SD - State inmates helped brighten the holidays for some kids by making wooden toys such as cars, puzzles and jewelry boxes from scrap lumber.

Inmates from the penitentiary in Sioux Falls and the Mike Durfee State Prison in Springfield also made hand-knitted stocking caps, mittens from leftover fleece and lap blankets and dolls from donated materials. Penitentiary staff delivered more than 1,800 knit stocking caps, 800 pairs of mittens and 2,300 toys to groups such as the Sioux Falls School District, Special Olympics, Ronald McDonald House, Children's Inn, Avera McKennan Assistance Program, Native American tribes and various law enforcement agencies.

Corrections Secretary Tim Reisch says he's proud of the generosity demonstrated by staff and inmates associated with various charitable efforts.
