Iowa prisoners tackle state's PPE shortage with sewing kits

Synopsis: Iowa Prison Industries initially hoped to make 500 cloth gowns but instead handed out kits to make 1,000 gowns. Once the gowns are sewn together, they are going to be distributed to nursing homes and care facilities. The organization said it hopes to hand out 1,000 more kits to eager sewers on Tuesday with help from Iowa Central Community College staff.
