YARN DRIVE NETS PLENTY OF SUPPORT FROM KENT COUNTY PAROLE OFFICE
To assist with the 2011 Lake County Residential ReEntry Program (LCRRP) yarn drive, the Kent County Parole Office elected to utilize one month’s “Jean Day” Fund, along with a substantial individual contribution from Mary Smith to purchase yarn. Kent County Parole is honored to be a part of the women’s efforts at LCRRP to provide much needed blankets, scarves, hats, mittens and baby items to several local charities, domestic violence shelters and Luther Lions. Keep up the great work and thanks to everyone involved!
