Pleasant Valley State Prison (PVSP) staff recently donated various items (food, toiletries and snacks) to military personnel from the prison’s area who have been deployed since January 2013 at the Ali Al Salem Air Base in Kuwait.

Happy recipient of PVSP staff’s care packages.

PVSP staff filled 48 12×12-inch priority mail boxes to ship to Correctional Sgt. D. Davis and his unit of approximately 100 men and women. PVSP also raised funds to pay the shipping cost, which was more than $700.

Sgt. D. Davis also is a Tech Sergeant with the Fresno Air National Guard 144th Security Forces. Sgt. Davis has served multiple deployments and is expected to return home sometime in September this year.

On May 31, all the care packages were reported received by the troops, reminding them that they are supported by CDCR staff back home.
