Greene Staff Donated Boots to Mission
January 28, 2020 12:00 AM
On Jan. 27, SCI Greene donated approximately 130 pair of gently-used Timberland Boots to the Washington City Mission. The City Mission shelters, heals and restores the homeless to independent living—without discrimination. Its program addresses both short-term needs including food and shelter, and long-term needs, including drug and alcohol counseling, mental health and medical treatment, legal aid and employment training. The Mission helps each man, woman, mother with children or veteran who walks through its doors to become a healthy, productive member of society. The City Mission's work is only possible by the community and businesses of Southwestern Pennsylvania's generous donations. Regardless of the items donated, the Mission makes use of each and every item. Mission Director of Operations Jason Johnson expressed his sincere gratitude for the donation of boots and said they will knowingly assist the residents within their program.
The boots were collected from inmates at SCI Greene when it was determined they were no longer permitted.
