Lexington, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Inmate Veterans Club at Lexington’s Blackburn Correctional Complex made a monetary donation to Booker T. Washington Elementary.
The $1 thousand donation was possible through collecting aluminum cans and holding various food sales.
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.”
