Transitional Backpacks up for Adoption

Transitional BackpacksWe provide a backpack to inmates who are getting released from prison. A simple backpack can and does represent hope to these men and women who have served their time behind bars. So many of them are scared or feel like no one cares about them. We, here at Love INC, want to make sure that everyone feels the love of Christ.

We have a close relationship with the prison chaplain, he calls us when an inmate requests a backpack. We are always in need of the following items: socks, hats, gloves, travel toiletries, razors, tooth brushes, bus tokens and bibles.

Your church could adopt this important ministry! Could you host a backpack drive and collect backpacks? How about a socks or gloves and hats drive? Could you ask your congregation to collect toiletries from hotels they stay at while on vacation? How about supplying bibles to include in the backpacks?

We hand pack each backpack with a shirt, pants and coat (if we have the correct size). We include a towel and washcloth, toiletries, a pair of socks, new undergarments, hat, gloves, bus tokens, bus schedule and a bible.

  1. To whom it may concern,
    I would like some information on how one is allowed to go inside the prison and minister the Word of God to the men inside?
    I’m certain there is background checks abba classes one has to take.
    I would like a point in the right direction, please.
    Thank you

  2. Thank you for your interest in the Prison Ministry. We don’t currently have a Chaplin at the prison at this time. If you would like to contact Gerald Stillman in Anchorage, he is the currant person in charge of the prison ministry there. I am sure that he would be able to point you in the right direction. His number is 907-269-4875. Good luck and God bless. Susan
