Spring Creek staff participate in Seward’s Independence Day celebration

We want to offer a special thanks to the Seward United Methodist Church for allowing our folks from the Spring Creek Correctional Center space to set up a booth on your lawn during Seward’s wonderful Fourth of July celebration.

Spring Creek staff used the opportunity to educate the public about projects and programs happening inside the walls, and to sell arts and crafts created by SCCC inmates. The inmates graciously agreed to contribute 35% of the proceeds from any arts and craft sales to the institution’s Special Pet Obedience Training (SPOT) program.

In the SPOT program, inmates care for, train, and rehabilitate dogs in-need, and then adopt them out to community members. With the money earned at this event, staff will be able to buy supplies, like dog food and training treats.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth, including Alaska Governor Bill Walker. We appreciate your support.
