NCF residents crochet 41 Prayer Shawls for local project

A collaboration with a local craft store gives Norton Correctional Facility residents opportunity to contribute to a worthy cause.

Norton Correctional Facility residents and Norton, Kansas’ Krafting Korner recently collaborated on a crochet project that resulted in 58 hand-crafted Prayer Shawls being distributed to Holding Hope Ministries in Overland Park, Kansas, and Share Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support, Inc., Missouri. The Prayer Shawls are intended to bring love, comfort and healing to aching hearts suffering through miscarriage, stillbirth or child loss.

NCF residents completed 41 of the 58 hand-crafted Prayer Shawls for the project. Mentors were recruited to teach any resident who was approved to participate in the Prayer Shawl community project how to crochet if they did not already know. Residents chose the yarn to use in their project, with many commenting they wanted to do a good deed, have the opportunity to give back to the community, and bring comfort to someone.

The full story includes quotes from several of the residents who participated, and pictures of their final projects. The story ran in a recent edition of the "Norton Telegram" or read the full story on the Norton Correctional Facility Facebook page
