Families in Transition Project

Goose Creek Correctional Center is proud to team up with Families in Transition to assist disadvantaged youth in the community. Over the past few months Goose Creek inmates have been knitting, excuse me “crocheting” sets of mittens and hats to donate to the Families in Transition project. Inmates Derek Berry and Mark Anderson volunteered to help teach novice crocheters the art of crocheting. Altogether the guys were able to crochet over 50 sets of hats and mittens of assorted size, style, and color. The inmates enjoyed the activity stating, “In a way it’s kind of therapeutic, plus, it always feels good to help out when you can.” Great job Goose Creek!
