Pendleton Juvenile Correctional Facility Donates Toys and Tie-Knots Blankets for the Holidays

Pendleton, Ind.
- During these difficult times, the staff and students of Pendleton Juvenile Correctional Facility (PNJCF) extended some holiday joy and happiness to children in need. PNJCF Program Director 1, Shondra Woods said, "The students asked if they could do something and donate it to a local charity. They came up with the idea to make the tie-knot blankets." Facility staff was then asked to participate in a toy drive to go to the same organization.

Donated Items

On December 21, 2020, several staff members from the Pendleton Juvenile Correctional Facility delivered the toys that staff donated to the Toys for Tots Organization in Anderson, Indiana.
