In commemoration of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, women at the Pocatello Women’s Correctional Center came together to create an afghan for a local shelter.
The Idaho Department of Correction said inmates volunteered to crochet 10×10 squares that were combined to create the afghan. The project was donated to Family Services Alliance in Pocatello.
The gift included the following message:
“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!”
