Arrow MDOC Partners with Boys and Girls Club

Media Advisory released by the Mississippi Department of Corrections
MDOC Partners with Boys and Girls Club
Jackson- On Wednesday, September 6, 2006 MDOC Commissioner Christopher Epps joined by Barbour Policy Advisor Daryl Neely and Billy Redd, president of Boys and Girls Club of Central Mississippi, highlighted the latest developments of the joint partnership to help Mississippi’s children.
Earlier this year Boys and Girls Club President Billy Redd approached MDOC about the growing need for labor assistance in making improvements to facilities and infrastructures used by the club for various activities for the children of central Mississippi.
"We needed help with building infrastructure and the right experienced labor to get the job done," said Redd. "I knew we could count on MDOC to offer support. We have a great partnership with this agency and I look forward to our continued association."
When approached by Redd and the Boys and Girls Club, Commissioner Epps did not hesitate to get the ball rolling. "MDOC and the Boys and Girls Club have had a great relationship over the past few years and I wanted to make sure that whatever needed to be done to help the kids could be done in a swift manner with experienced workers," said Epps. "We routinely offer help to local government entities and community organizations by using inmate labor. It saves a ton of money for the organizations while also supplying well-trained people to do the jobs."
"It makes a significant difference in monetary resources and keeping a balance when such a productive and fine organization like the Boys and Girls Club can save money by enlisting the help of MDOC," said Mr. Neely. "Governor Barbour is a wholehearted supporter of the Boys and Girls Clubs and he was glad to offer his support of this joint project."
Wednesday, September 6, 2006 at 2:30 p.m. at Camp John I. Hay in Hazlehurst, MS, MDOC and the Boys and Girls Club finalized the last project developed by inmate labor. Commissioner Epps, Mr. Neely, and Mr. Redd made comments about the efforts. Please contact Nic Lott for more information.
