In honor of National Crime Victims Rights Week, which was April 2-8, 2017, the staff of the Northeast Correctional Center in Bowling Green raised $1,152.94 through a silent auction and by standing at the intersection of Hwy. 161 and Business Hwy. 61 in Bowling Green.
According to officials with NECC, this year’s donation of $1,152.94 is the most the group has raised since the local prison began honoring the National Crime Victims Rights Week.
Pictured making the donation to local service organization, Ruth Jensen Village is from left: Lt. David Cutt, NECC Administrative Section Unit; Chantay Godert, NECC Deputy Warden; Beth Kerns, Ruth Jensen Village Assistant Director; and Rick Hays, NECC Functional Unit Manager.
According to Kerns, portions of the funds have been used to help purchase a variety of items for Ruth Jensen Village residents.
Ruth Jensen Village was founded in 1988 to allow Pike Countians with mental disabilities to live in residential homes at the Ruth Jensen Village campus in Bowling Green.
