Inmates Make Jewelry for Salvation Army

Inmates Make Jewelry for Salvation Army
By Heidi Harris

Three inmates at the Jamestown Regional Correctional Center have made jewelry for the Barnes County Salvation Army to give to area residents in need, said Lee Isensee, volunteer with the Salvation Army.

Isensee said, "Although many of the inmates may not have someone or very few (people) on the outside that seem to care about them, it does not stop them from caring about others."

"With the blessing of prison officials, three inmates were able to share love and giving spirit with those on the outside who might not be able to afford Christmas gifts." Isensee said the inmates used the few dollars they earn a day to buy beads, thread, crosses, clasps and other materials to make necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

"With the supplies in hand, they went to work for many, many hours to make this beautiful jewelry," Isensee said. "Their hope is that others can feel the love that God has shown them."

Isensee said, "This gift will bring Christmas much joy to many people in need. These are good people that just made some bad choices and it is because of God's love for them that they are able to show that love to others they don't even know. This is truly the meaning of Christmas." The Barnes County Salvation Army's Red Kettle Drive kicked off Friday. Those interested in ringing the bell should call Joe Lunde at 701-840-0908 or 701-845-1974. trnews1@times-online.com
