Prisoner Gift Project for 2013

Assembly of gift bags for Prison Project

Photo by Derek Gee, The Buffalo News

On Friday, December 6, Sister Karen Klimczak’s legacy Christmas Prison Package Project will continue at Blessed Trinity when dozens of volunteers gather in the church to assemble nearly 2000 gift bags for men and women in Erie County correctional facilities. Anyone interested in assisting can join one of two shifts: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 6 p.m. until completion (usually about 9 p.m.). Just bring your willing hands and hearts to our church at 317 Leroy Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14214. Sister Karen originated the project years ago so that incarcerated men would know they were not forgotten. The project has since been expanded to include women inmates. Thousands of pre-packaged food items as well as paperback books have been collected from area congregations, community members and businesses, but they need to be packed into hand-decorated bags and readied for delivery.
