Through the Angel Tree® Prison Fellowship Program, the KRA San Diego Metro Region Centers, operated for the San Diego Workforce Partnership, “adopted” a family—a mother; children, 5 and 7; and a father…who was incarcerated.
Career Agent Catherine McLean, reports, “As part of our 2016 Community Care Campaign, KRA/San Diego staff donated both time and money to provide some Holiday cheer for our adopted family. Gifts were given to the children as if they were from their parents, with each receiving toys from their Angel Tree wish lists, as well as books, clothes, and a Holiday stocking filled with more goodies.
Presents for the family included $200 in store cards for Payless, Target, Marshalls, and Walmart, and AMC Movie Theater gift cards. In separate Holiday cards from ‘The KRA Corporation’, each child received a $5.00 Target card, and we surprised ‘Mom’ with two $25.00 Marshalls’ cards and a gift bag filled with scented candles, books, body lotion, and costume jewelry.”
KRA/San Diego applauds and supports the mission of the Angel Tree program, which provides much-needed happiness and hope for prison inmates and their families during the Holidays.
