LAPCORR Industries Reaches Out to the Community

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

LAPCORR Industries is holding true to its motto "Working for the community." On Tuesday, April 15, at 1:00pm the jail industries program under the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office will deliver pet beds made by inmate workers to Lafayette Animal Control located on Pont Des Mouton.

The beds were made from worn/unusable inmate uniforms. Parts of the inmate uniforms were salvaged and sewn together to create pet beds for animals under the care of animal control.

The beds are also part of the "go green" initiative as the old uniforms previously would have been discarded. Lt. Cynthia Canezaro, manager of LAPCORR Industries says, "Giving back to our community is what LAPCORR Industries is about. This has been a rewarding project for our employees and inmate workers."

The beds are available to local not for profit animal shelters. Requests for the beds can be made by calling LAPCORR Industries at 236-5856.
