jail donation

Duane Hicks

Peggy Loyie, program mnanager of the Rainy River District Victim Services Program, was happy to receive a donation of food and a cheque for $100 from OPSEU Local 718 correctional staff Ellie Tucker, Tom Kenny, and Don Gavel on Monday at the RRDVSP office on Scott Street. Local 718 joined other correctional and youth justice workers across the province that day for “Corrections cares about community safety” charity events. The purpose not only is to give back to the communities they serve and boost staff morale, but to raise public awareness of issues facing correctional services in Ontario, including workplace safety and under-staffing.
