The Women’s Honor Farm Sewing Program recently presented 60 western-style vests handmade by inmates to representatives of Jack’s Helping Hand.
Sewing the western vests for children struggling with cancer has been a rewarding experience for the female inmates and has allowed them to feel connected to the community. Each vest has been specifically designed with a child’s age and gender in mind. These western vests allow the children to use their imaginations, forget their illnesses for a time, and just be kids.
Jack’s Helping Hand assists children with illnesses and disabilities, providing special treatment, services, equipment, and transportation that are not provided by other sources; or which exceed family financial capabilities.
