The Chuckawalla Valley State Prison’s (CVSP) Inmate Veterans Group donated $975 to the Palo Verde High School Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) in an effort to help offset costs associated with the program.

The money was raised through an inmate food sale. Earnings from such sales are donated to a non-profit organization selected by the inmate group conducting the sale.

The JROTC’s check was presented to Master Sergeant Walker, senior instructor.

“The members of CVSP’s Veterans Group are grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve by giving back to the community,” said inmate Latscha, chairman, Facility D Veterans Group. “This donation will help to provide needed supplies to make the Palo Verde High School JROTC program better. Our plan is to continue to donate to the Palo Verde High School’s JROTC program as funds come available.”
