EASTER BASKETSChuckawalla Valley State Prison (CVSP) recently delivered 85 Easter baskets to programs that support underprivileged children.

“As we distributed the Easter baskets I saw the joy it brought to the children.  CVSP’s employees, their families and friends are making the Easter baskets a tradition that the less-fortunate children of the community look forward to,” said Warden A. M. Gonzales.

The Easter baskets were given to the Riverside County Department of Public Social Services and the Palo Verde Unified School District, which provided a list of the age groups to which the baskets would be given.
