This is the second year the Veterans Club has made the same donation.

The Inmate Veterans Club works to create a positive impact in the community.

“We are here because we have made a mistake, as veterans, we refuse to let our past define us,” said one member of the club in a press release. “Giving back to the children is the least we could do. If given the platform, we would donate more and more every year.”
