The Express
The students attending the Life Skills program at the Clinton County Correctional Facility recently completed a special project under the direction of their instructor, Michelle Bates of the CIU No.10 Development Center for Adults. Bates submitted an application for an “Act of Kindness” grant through the Great Island Presbyterian Church Missions Program and chose to do the project with her students at correctional facility. The grant money was used to purchase fleece fabric for the ladies to make no-sew blankets, which have been donated to the Life Center. The ladies enjoyed the opportunity to learn a new skill as well has having a part in helping others in the community. Pastor Benjamin Lins received the blankets on behalf of church and the Life Center. From left are Deputy Warden Jackie Motter, Michelle Bates, Jerri Popovich, Jody Snook, Michelle Lohman, Dawn Spivey, and Lins.
