I have been a certified volunteer chaplain assistant for many years. I last served at the Plane State Women's Facility in Dayton, Texas. It was there I discovered that many women inmates were not given basic hygiene items, such as shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste and bath soap. If they had financial support from the outside, they could purchase these items from the prison commissary. If they had no money, they relied on donations given to the prison chaplain. Sometimes the donations were plentiful; sometimes they were non-existant. The campaign goal funds will provide money to purchase hygiene items for Plane State Prison and one other prision in the State of Texas for one year! Please consider giving to such a needed cause.
