The inmates at the Palmer Correctional Center Minimum Facility volunteered their time to construct wooden cars and trucks for donations to local charities. The wood to make the wooden cars and trucks was donated by local businesses. Approximately 700 wooden toys were made in the Inmate Hobby Wood shop by the minimum prisoners.
