JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - Inmates at a North Dakota prison are using the $2 they earn every day to benefit the Salvation Army.

KOVC-AM (https://bit.ly/1PZvjXD ) reports three inmates at the James River Correctional Center in Jamestown received permission from prison officials to buy beads, thread, crosses and other supplies and spent months making necklaces, bracelets and earrings for people in need.

The Salvation Army will handle distribution of the handmade items.

Barnes County Salvation Army spokesman Lee Isensee says the inmates “are good people that just made some bad choices” and their donation “is truly the true meaning of Christmas.”
