Those in need, and the organization who helps them, received a boost thanks to the efforts of inmates and staff at Sierra Conservation Center (SCC).
SCC recently presented a check for $621 to the Calaveras Food Project. This money was raised by the inmate population through a food drive, organized by Susan Mena-Syljuberget.
Additionally staff members at SCC donated 1,166 pounds of food to help with the increased need.
Year-to-date, SCC has contributed 1,666 pounds of food and $1,028 to the organization.
