Volunteers are Indispensable—See How They Impact Lives at the Bridgeport Facility
The Bridgeport Correctional Center, in Bridgeport, Texas loves their volunteers who come to the facility and give of their time to help the residents in countless ways.
“We’ve got over a hundred volunteers that are in this facility on a monthly basis,” explains facility Warden Gary Currie. “They do a phenomenal job, trying to mentor, to inspire these guys to be better than they were yesterday, and I can’t express my gratitude and pride in the job that they do.”
Volunteers are instrumental in providing the residents with opportunities to serve, as well as connect with their families. From facilitating dads reading to their kids to creating items to help children and others who are in need—the volunteers are making a difference in the lives of the men.
Pam Randall is a regular volunteer at the facility.
“MTC, and this facility, has been so awesome to work with,” she says. “In the beginning, showing us what we needed to do for security, and then really teaching us how to implement it. This is a program that takes extra work for the officers, and they are so helpful in every way, to keep it going and give us what we need. It’s amazing.”
