Wasco State Prison-Reception Center partnered with local schools to make the holiday dreams come true for 260 local children.
WSP-RC Staff members were excited to help the children in the community. Staff bought gifts for three different local schools in the area and also provided gifts for their younger siblings that showed up with their parents to see Santa.
Staff was provided with a wish list by the teaching staff at local schools.
Community Resource Manager Joyce Faidley distributed name tags with gift information to enthusiastic staff throughout the institution. As usual, the staff at WSP-RC did not disappoint as the support for this annual program was overwhelming.
Staff volunteers accompanied Warden John N. Katavich to the local schools to distribute the gifts.
