Community Involvement

Stafford Creek inmates participate in various activities that support the community.

Volunteer Programs

Volunteers are instrumental in assisting in the development of programs aimed at promoting positive changes in personal growth and successful reintegration to society. The Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program puts together fundraisers for community charity groups such as the Children's Advocacy Center of Grays Harbor , Coastal Community Action Program , Habitat for Humanity , and the Grays Harbor Food Bank Distribution Center.

Giving Back to the Community

The Grays Harbor Lions Club works with Bicycles from Heaven to donate like-new bikes to the community. Inmates receive old bikes and bike parts, refurbish them, and donate them to the Lions Club for distribution to individuals in need. Over 1,000 bikes have been distributed throughout Grays Harbor County to date.

Inmates also participate in outreach efforts, such as crocheting hats and blankets and donating them to community like the United Gospel Mission of Grays Harbor , the nursery at the local hospital, and the United Way of Grays Harbor Coat & Blanket Drive. Through Toy Time, inmates make toys to donate to the community for children during the holidays. These donations go to the Children's Advocacy Center of Grays Harbor and the Christmas for Kids in Grays Harbor program.
