IONE – Mule Creek State Prison held its second Annual School Supply Campaign in July and August to help students start the new school year with the right supplies.

“The participation and outpouring of donations by our employees was overwhelming,” said Warden William Knipp.

Nine large boxes of school supplies were delivered to Amador Unified County School District to be distributed among county schools. The supplies ranged from paper, pens, pencils, crayons, backpacks, binders, art supplies and calculators to dictionaries and more.

Mule Creek State Prison employees used the campaign to make a difference by giving back to the community where they live and work.

“We are very excited to collaborate with the local school district to help meet the great demand for school supplies,” added Warden Knipp.
