PWCC inmates make scrap-a-gan

October is domestic violence awareness month. In light of this, women at PWCC have come together to create an afghan (scrap-a-gan) for a local shelter. 

Inmates participated on a volunteer basis. They were able to contribute to the cause by crocheting 10x10 squares that were later combined to create an afghan. 

The finished project was donated to Family Services Alliance in Pocatello. It contained the following message from the inmates who contributed to the afghan: 

This afghan (scrap-a-gan) was made by many different hands from the ladies at PWCC. Many of these ladies have been touched and broken from domestic violence in some way; either physically, emotionally, or verbally. It will take many hands to help stop domestic violence. If you see something- We must be the generation to stop looking the other way. Please be one of those hands to help stop it!
