Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution purchased gifts for 84 local children as part of the Angel Tree program through The Salvation Army.


Staff and contractors at Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution recently gave a helping hand to Santa Claus.

Those affiliated with the Pendleton prison helped by sponsoring more than 80 children through the Angel Tree program coordinated by The Salvation Army. The project provides Christmas gifts for needy children in the community. For the past four years, Lt. Jeff Carey has organized the effort at EOCI, with this year’s project resulting in gifts for 84 children.

Sylvia Scruggs of The Salvation Army Pendleton Corps recently picked up the gifts, which will be distributed to the community.

“Even during the busy holiday season we enjoy coming together to support our local community,” said Jackie Peck, EOCI public information officer.
