During the past year, the Community Resource Manager (CRM) at Mule Creek State Prison (MCSP) is making a difference in the community.
Community Resource Manager Jason Ross and his staff have made a remarkable impact to the surrounding community through donations and support of local businesses.
MCSP has donated over $110,000 to local nonprofit groups and charities thanks to the success of incarcerated food sales.
Supporting community beyond financial donations
The CRM office also facilitates the Bicycle Restoration Program, collaborating with the Ione Police Department to donate restored bikes to local children.
Collaborating with Nexus Youth & Family Services, Ross and MCSP staff pitched in for the annual Backpack-2-School program, donating backpacks and school supplies. Overall, the effort totaled 470 backpacks and enough supplies to fill each one.
Some of the local nonprofits MCSP donates to are:
- A-PAL Humane Society
- Job’s Daughters
- Ione Memorial Post 8254 VFW
- Operation Care
- Victory Village.
Through their dedication to supporting local children’s programs, MCSP also donates to:
