Graduate Student Organization volunteers with Salvation Army
Loyola’s Criminal Justice and Criminology Graduate Student Organization volunteered with the Salvation Army’s Pathway Forward Program, a community reintegration program for individuals who are returning to the community following incarceration located on Chicago’s near-west side, to wrap toys children with incarcerated parents. Applications were received by the Salvation Army from incarcerated parents in Illinois requesting Christmas gifts for their children. The program was launched by the Salvation Army in 1954 and keeps incarcerated parents connected to their children during the holidays. The gifts are sent from the parent with no Salvation Army identification.
