FOLSOM STATE PRISON TO DELIVER HALLOWEEN BASKETS TO CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES

One hundred Halloween baskets made by inmates and staff at Folsom State Prison will be delivered to El Dorado County Child Protective Services on Tuesday, October 29, 1996 at 9:00 a.m. at 3057 Briw Road, Placerville.

Children in Halloween costume will be at the location to receive the baskets, which will be delivered to children in the Child Protective Services at another time.

The colorful wooden baskets constructed by inmates at the prison will be filled with treats donated by local merchants and prison staff. A special book mark designed by inmates in the Arts-in-Corrections program to highlight the National Red Ribbon Campaign will also be included in each basket.

Another 400 baskets will be delivered to Sacramento and Placer counties for their Child Protective Services. This is the sixth year that inmates at Folsom State Prison have provided counties with these Halloween crafts.
