On Aug. 26, SCI Somerset held its 26th Annual Volunteer Recognition Banquet. Thirty-five volunteers and guests, as well as 28 inmates, were treated to a wonderful dinner and program all funded by the Somerset Organization Advancement of Residents (SOAR) program.

This year, Lawrence Powers, Sr., was selected as Volunteer of the Year. Larry is very driven to serve the prison community.

"I need to let these guys know that we can change," he said.

Larry, a Narcotics Anonymous volunteer, has spent more than 20 years volunteering at multiple SCIs. Recovery is a life-long journey. It is imperative that those in addiction know recovery is possible. In a time when addiction is an epidemic, we need people like Larry more than ever.

SCI Somerset thanks Lawrence Powers for helping to change lives.
