Iowa Inmates Make Dressers For The Free Store

When Harry Swanson of The Free Store in Des Moines, IA, learned that inmates in Ohio were making dressers for families in need, he called Becky Munoz at Iowa Prison Industries and inquired about the possibility of have the Iowa inmates make dressers for domestic violence victims in need in Des Moines. Becky was happy to tackle the project, and delivered 32 dressers to The Free Store in December 2011. Harry was delighted with the results, and the two organizations hope to repeat the project again in 2012.
