The California Rehabilitation Center (CRC) donated 2,000 flags to the Riverside National Cemetery in honor of Veterans day.  Proceeds for inmate food sales at CRC funded the donation.

Hundreds of volunteers placed flags on the graves of fallen soldiers for the Veterans Day weekend. It was planned that the effort would provide a flag for every one of the Riverside National Cemetery’s 200,000 graves.

CRC was proud to participate in this humanitarian effort, said Warden Cynthia Tampkins

“We are blessed to be able to give to others who are less fortunate, and we wish we could have given more” Warden Tampkins said.
