Larch offenders sell pizza for charity



North County — Offenders at Larch Corrections Center in the Yacolt area raised $544 on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 5, for Bridge the Gap, a community outreach program that provides resources to enhance the stability, growth and success of children in foster and adoptive care. Larch offenders work a variety of jobs in the community and at the prison and earn 35 cents per hour. The inmates were given the opportunity to purchase a pizza and donate $2 of the proceeds from each pizza to Bridge the Gap. Organizers partnered with Little Caesar’s Pizza in Battle Ground to hold the event.
