GUNNISON, Utah — Over the past two weeks, inmates working in the sewing shop at the Central Utah Correctional Facility in Gunnison have been hard at work creating backpacks.
The inmates created the backpacks from start to finish — designing them, cutting out fabric and sewing them together. They made more than 500 backpacks, according to a press release from the Utah Department of Corrections, which donated the materials to make the backpacks.
The Department of Corrections said the backpacks were delivered to the Children’s Justice Center on Monday, Dec. 3. The Children’s Justice Center will fill the backpacks with donated items and then distribute them to younger children they serve.
