Inmates at the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Women’s Honor Farm donated 60 western-style vests to the local non-profit Jack’s Helping Hand on Wednesday.
The vests were made by inmates in the Honor Farm’s Sewing Program for children battling cancer. Each vest was specifically designed with a particular child’s age and gender in mind. The hope is the vests will spark the children’s imaginations and allow them to forget about their illnesses for a short time.
Jack’s Helping Hand provides assistance to children with cancer and special needs.
Inmates in the Women’s Honor Farm Sewing Program also participate in other projects throughout the year, including making teddy bears for the Get on the Bus program and sewing blankets for various non-profits.
