DECEMBER 16, 2016 DANVILLE, KY – As part of its Telmate Cares community outreach program, the San Francisco-based corrections company Telmate donated $1,500 to support a dozen volunteers providing relief to Haitians devastated by the effects of Hurricane Matthew.
A week after the Category 4 hurricane storm hammered Haiti in early October, Jailer Barry Harmon of Boyle County Detention Center, Kentucky, began collecting donations for the volunteer effort during the Kentucky Jailers Association (KJA) fall conference. Telmate matched KJA’s $1,500 donation and additional donations were made by local community and church groups. Harmon is a member of Christ Like Agape Ministry (CLAM), a missionary group that’s spent the last three years sponsoring the small village of Port-au-Ceil. Read more
