CVSP Warden Kimberly A. Seibel, Community Resource Manager Kenny Kalian, Lt. Maria Mireles and Executive Assistant Ellen Rutledge delivered 60 Easter Baskets to local programs supporting underprivileged children on March 25. The baskets were given to the Palo Verde Unified School District.  On April 2, an additional 20 baskets were delivered to the Riverside County Department of Public Social Services.

The Riverside County Department of Public Social Services and the Palo Verde Unified School District provided CVSP with a list of age groups for which the baskets would be given. The bunny shaped baskets were fabricated and painted by CVSP inmates. The baskets were filled with toys and candy by CVSP employees.

“Our employees, their families and friends continue to demonstrate their heart for giving.  The Easter baskets have become a tradition that the less-fortunate children of the community look forward to,” said Kenny Kalian.

Chuckawalla Valley State Prison employees, family and friends stuffed inmate-manufactured Easter baskets to be donated to organizations serving the less fortunate.
