DeWitt Wards Knitting
The following pictures were taken at the DeWitt Nelson Youth Correctional
Facility. Wards knitted blankets and donated them to women's and
children's shelters in San Joaquin County during Victim Rights week 2007.
Levi Huffman donated his music, which was found to be incredibly inspiring for the effort. They knitted by hand a total of 28 blankets in two months, right up until the facility closed. Not bad, considering they were just learning!
