The California Youth Authority's Southern Reception Center and Clinic, a nonprofit juvenile institution, is seeking donations during the holiday season for incarcerated youthful offenders.
Donations of money will be used to purchase gifts for wards who do not receive presents or visits from family members. Gifts, such as portable radios and cassette players, stationery, paperback books, magazines, toiletry items and candy will be accepted.
The institution has a ward population of approximately 600. The Reception Center is also seeking the donation of a refrigerator and two microwave ovens. Potential donors may contact Deborah McKee, volunteer program manager, at 868-9979.
