High Desert State Prison

Community services from American Legion baseball to a Lassen County hospice received the benefits of donations from High Desert State Prison (HDSP).

High Desert State Prison Warden (A) Fred Foulk gave $1,200 the Honey Lake Hospice.

The hospice is and all volunteer organization that provides hospice care to the residents of Lassen County.

The funds will greatly help this organization with their operating costs.

Warden Foulk also presented a $1,000 check to the American Legion Baseball Post 204.

The donation will be used to assist the teams with expenses incurred while traveling to tournaments and with the entry fees for those tournaments.

Steve Robertson of the Legion post said that the donation “comes at a time when we are desperately in need of funds.”

The money for both donations was made possible through various inmate food and photo sale fundraisers in which inmates are allowed to purchase food and photos from vendors, and a portion of the proceeds raised are donated to local charities.
