HCF inmates switch from sewing prison clothing to making cloth masks, gowns

Synopsis: Incarcerated individuals at the Hutchinson Correctional Facility have moved from making inmate clothing to creating cloth masks and gowns in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Their Central Unit, as well as a handful of volunteers, have sewn some 40,000 cloth face masks so far and are now working on full-body cloth gowns. To date, we’ve made 1,500 gowns, with another 2,000 on the production floor.
