Telmate Cares and Hurricane Hermine

SEPTEMBER 2, 2016 – As Hurricane Hermine hit Georgia and Florida earlier this month, in conjunction with the the Douglas and Effingham county jails Telmate, as part of the company’s Telmate Cares program, offered free phone calls and messages to help inmates connect with their friends and family during the crisis.

Between Friday 9/2-Monday 9/5, in Douglas the facility and Telmate gave away about 53,000 free phone minutes and 680 free messages, and in Effingham it was over 8,000 free phone minutes and nearly 2,000 free messages. These numbers prove what we all know–that during an emergency we all need to connect with those we love.
