Pleasant Valley State Prison

Warden (A) Scott Frauenheim of Pleasant Valley State Prison recently presented a $1,406.31 check to Megan Newton, Coalinga Fire Department Office Assistant, as part of the fire department’s toy drive.

PVSP staff organized and held an inmate food drive raising the funds to assist in this yearly charitable event.

The money will be used to purchase Christmas presents for less fortunate children in Coalinga.
