Last week, Christian singer Lauren Daigle visited the Louisiana State Penitentiary, known as the “Alcatraz of the South,” ministering to the inmates there.
The “You Say” singer posted footage of her trip to the prison, the largest maximum-security facility in the U.S., announcing she and her fans had raised $17,000 to help the inmates make phone calls and get new clothes for Christmas.
Daigle first shared the campaign to raise the funds to her Facebook page on Giving Tuesday, noting she would soon be visiting Angola.
“We’re heading to Angola Prison in Louisiana next week and I want to invite you all to gift the prisoners with calls and clothes,” she announced. “These are luxuries to inmates and not every person can afford to call home for the holidays, connect with their families and hear the voice of a loved one.”
“There is also a need for loungewear for the women,” she added. “Help comfort them this season and let them know there are people who care and have not forgotten them.”
