NH State Prison for Women to Recognize Volunteers
(Goffstown, NH) Every year, more than seventy-five volunteers provide treatment, recreational opportunities, spiritual support, and education to the inmates at the New Hampshire State Prison for Women in Goffstown. These individuals will be recognized at the annual Volunteer Appreciation Celebration on Wednesday, April 18, 2007.
The celebration will include remarks from inmates who have benefited from volunteers as well as entertainment by the inmate choir. A certificate of appreciation will be awarded to a Volunteer of the Year.
Acting Warden Joanne Fortier said, “This is an opportunity for the women to thank those who have helped them better prepare for release.”
Each New Hampshire Department of Corrections prison recognizes volunteers at similar celebrations each year. Nearly fifteen hundred people volunteer their time at all facilities.
