Prisoners offer gift to Emmaus
The P.L.U.S. program at the New Castle Correctional Facility in New Castle Indiana has recently reached out to the Emmaus Mission Center in Logansport.
A $500 donation was raised by selling food items through P.L.U.S. to the general population at the facility. This will hopefully allow the mission to extend its outreach further into the needs of the community. The Logansport community has reached out to the New Castle Correctional Facility and its needs by supplying materials for prison projects. The facility wanted to reciprocate the thoughtfulness by giving back through a worthy cause and decided on Emmaus.
P.L.U.S. is a program dedicated to helping willing men and women to shape their lives for the better in the most appropriate environment as possible. The men at the New Castle Correctional Facility are a group of 50 who strive to assist their communities and individuals in any manner they can. Recent projects for the group include making bird houses, wood projects, lap quilts and a card ministry for the elderly. Giving back to others is a vital step in the healing process for these men and women, and they are eager to jump at new opportunities to make a difference in their lives and lives of people abroad.
