Harvey Disaster Relief
Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those in Texas as they endure the catastrophic effects from Hurricane Harvey. Five prisons in the area have been evacuated. The manpower to accomplish this task was enormous. Thank you to the correctional staff for their unwavering dedication to fulfilling their mission, even as their own homes and communities were facing disasters of their own.
ASCA (Association of State Correctional Administrators) has set up a disaster relief fund for those who would like to donate to help provide hurricane relief funds for correctional staff in Texas. Please visit their website today.
There is also a fund for criminal justice employees set up with the Correctional Peace Officers Foundation. Monetary donations can be made on their website by clicking on the Hurricane Harvey Donate drop box located towards the bottom of the home page. To donate items, call 936-437-2101 or send an email.
While our hearts and prayers are definitely with Corrections, we must also remember that there are others in Texas who need our assistance as well. Visit Governor Haslam's Harvey Disaster Relief webpage to learn about organizations that need your donations so they can continue to assist those affected by the disaster.
Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
