Hopkins UMW Provides Re-Entry Kits

20 personal care bags on table

Hopkins UMC United Methodist Women initiated a project to provide “re-entry” kits to inmates being released from the Allegan County Jail. Each kit contains personal care items, a pocket calendar, a pair of socks and/or gloves, a small treat and a card from our church. Funding for the project came from private donations, loose change offerings and a Fresh Expressions Grant from the District. The first 20 kits (10 men and 10 women) were delivered to the jail in early January 2022.
