Family Visiting Day, 2008

March 15 marked CCWP’s forth annual Family Visiting Day event connecting with family members and loved ones of prisoners at Central California Women’s Facility (CCWF) and Valley State Prison for Women (VSPW) and providing transportation from Oakland and Los Angeles to see their loved ones inside.
As in past years, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles offered their building as the southern California meeting place and Friends Outside, a statewide organization which provides services and programs to loved ones of people caught in the criminal legal system, welcomed our volunteers at the CCWF visitor trailer during the visiting hours.
Thank you to all the loved ones who made the long trip with us, and to Eric de Bode at Chowchilla Family Express and the folks at CCWF Friends Outside for helping make this beautiful event happen.
Thanks also to Noah’s Bagels, Rainbow Grocery Cooperative, Trader Joe’s, and Veritable Vegetable for their generous food donations and to Hometown Buffet in Merced for working with our group.
