Psychological Services Specialist Weible delivered several boxes of hats, scarves and blankets to DuBois Salvation Army for their Project Bundle Up—all of which were made by inmates on the Special Needs Unit.
SCI Forest inmate organization HOPE for Change purchased the yarn, and during the last year the inmates on the SNU have been busy crocheting various items to be donated. The program is really a win-win for everyone: It fulfills Hope for Change's mission to give back to the community, allows inmates on the Special Needs Unit to participate in a calming activity and learn a new skill and helps keep community residents warm.
