Work Release Fundraiser
Friday, February 16, 2007
Hard work but for a good cause was the attitude several Work Release Program residents had when they organized and conducted a fundraiser for the Little Lambs Outreach program. In a joint effort with Brother Russell Roseberry of InnerFaith Prison Ministry, these residents sold a lunch meal consisting of a barbequed hamburger or hot dogs, bag of chips, and a drink for $5.00 each. Work Release participant Robert Green suggested the idea to InnerFaith staff and actually used his own personal funds to purchase the patties, hot dogs, drinks, and condiments. The remaining items needed for the fundraiser (buns and chips) were donated through InnerFaith volunteers. The Work Release Program resident population purchased the majority of the meals and Work Release Program staff purchased the remaining meals. A total of $214 was raised for the Little Lambs.
