We were recently told about an opportunity to help in the community and would like to pass this opportunity on to others in the county.
The State of Missouri Department of Corrections Reception and Diagnostic Center is looking for someone to work with the prisoners on a craft project. In the past, the prisoners have made stockings for children in the community and because they have no one to volunteer for this project, it seems it might not happen this year.
You don’t even have to be crafty to help, they are looking for people to give of their time and check supplies in and out while the prisoners are working on this.
If you are interested in helping out in any way, please contact Mylene Dunn or Sharon Lynch at the health department or send them an e-mail and they will put you in contact with the person at FRDC.
This is a great way to give back to the community through many avenues, helping children in the community, helping the prisoners by giving them activities to make them feel a part of our community.
