Program creates blankets for veterans

–The San Luis Obispo Elks Lodge donated $1,000 to the Sheriff’s Advisory Foundation benefiting the Women’s Honor Farm Sewing Program.

The money will be used to purchase supplies to continue with the production of afghans and lap blankets for military veterans in treatment at area VA facilities. Each is handmade by Women’s Honor Farm inmates. Their original goal was to make 30. They ended up with more than 100. The program helps give a sense of worth to the inmates and a sense of security and warmth to the veterans.
