Correctional Training Facility (CTF) staff and incarcerated organized a food sale for a local school, raising over $7,500. This initiative directly contributes to sports and afterschool programs at John Gutierrez Middle School in Salinas. The donation provides financial support for essential resources such as new equipment, supplies, and transportation.
CTF is committed to investing in the future of local youth, according to organizers. The incarcerated and staff at CTF recognize the importance of extracurricular activities in the development and well-being of young students. These programs play a vital role in nurturing physical fitness, teamwork, discipline, and personal growth. All of these factors contribute to their overall educational experience.
“These events establish positive engagement between incarcerated individuals and the broader community. By organizing and participating in these events, the incarcerated population demonstrate their commitment to giving back and making meaningful contributions to society,” said V. Baldwin, Correctional Counselor II.
