The staff and inmates at SCI Laurel Highlands came together to support their local food banks.

There have been many people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and everyone, including the inmates, at Laurel Highlands stepped up to the plate. Pastor Peter Kaltenbaugh—of the Meyersdale Church of the Brethren and the Casselman Valley Food Bank—was a guest at a recent Fireside Chat. He expressed his appreciation and was presented with the checks from the Phoenix group and the staff.

They were able to make a monetary donation of $1,285.81 to the Casselman Valley Food Bank and $1,285.00 to the Berlin Food Bank. Staff also brought in food donations that were also donated to the cause.
