Inmate work service crew spruces up Clare House

A volunteer community work service crew of eight inmates from Hiland Mountain Correctional Center in Eagle River spent a day cleaning and beautifying the front, side and back yards at Clare House in Anchorage. Clare House is an emergency homeless shelter for women with children and expectant mothers. The HMCC Inmate Council and Native Culture Clubs purchased tools, soil, seed, and plants for the spring cleanup project. In all, inmates raised and donated $1694.00 plus labor.
