College students, museum benefit from fundraisers
Two recent Substance Abuse Treatment Facility (SATF) donations will make a big difference to students and history fans in the Corcoran area.
In February, members of the Chicano Correctional Workers Association (CCWA) at SATF held a pozole sale. Employees raised $1,338, in addition to enjoying a tasty meal. The funds will help the community in the form of college scholarships. Scholarship awardees will be announced later this year.
Warden (A) Bryan Phillips stopped by and thanked the staff members who were purchasing a meal as well as those who assisted in making the food sale a success.
SATF donations boost museum
On February 21, Phillips, Community Resource Manager (CRM) Jeanette Bragg and Chief Deputy Warden (A) Raul Morales presented a check to the City of Corcoran Community Foundation for $2,792. Incarcerated people held food sales to raise the funds.
Such events are not possible without the support of dedicated SATF staff and the population. Phillips shared he was thrilled SATF could support Corcoran and its Museum Committee.
