Rapid City inmates create toys, hats for low income families

Posted:


Hundreds of minimum security inmates took on the role of toy-making elves this year, to help KOTA territory families in need.
 
Inmates at the minimum security unit in Rapid City helped create more than 300 toys and hand-knitted stocking caps. The toys will be paired with pre-packaged boxes of holiday food essentials, like a frozen turkey, canned vegetables and bread, all collected by the Salvation Army.

All the boxes will be delivered to families living in public housing units, as well as rural development properties as far as Newell, Hill City and Wall.

More than 649 packages will be delivered to low income families, to help them get through the holiday season.
 
"We recognize that sometimes the toys, and meals are hard for them to put together. It's something we're happy to do," said Bryan Achbach, with Pennington county housing.
 
This is the 15th year the Salvation Army and Pennington county housing have organized and delivered the food packages, and the very 1st year inmates have created toys and hats to be donated as well.
