Telmate Cares makes donation to Kentucky group helping Haitians affected by Hurricane Matthew
As part of its Telmate Cares community outreach program, the San Francisco-based corrections company Telmate donated $1,500 to support a dozen volunteers providing relief to Haitians devastated by the effects of Hurricane Matthew.
A week after the Category 4 hurricane storm hammered Haiti in early October, Jailer Barry Harmon of Boyle County Detention Center, Kentucky, began collecting donations for the volunteer effort during the Kentucky Jailers Association (KJA) fall conference. Telmate matched KJA’s $1,500 donation and additional donations were made by local community and church groups. Harmon is a member of Christ Like Agape Ministry (CLAM), a missionary group that’s spent the last three years sponsoring the small village of Port-au-Ceil.
Group members will continue to collect and send donations to help rebuild the village. Anyone interested in participating in CLAM’s on-going outreach program can contact Phillip Yates, President of CLAM, at (859) 265-1821 or Phillipyates_1@bellsouth.net. Monetary donations to help victims of Port-au-Ceil may also be mailed to Christ Like Agape Ministries Inc., P.O. Box 638, Burgin, Ky. 40310. Checks should be payable to “Christ Like Agape Ministries Inc.” or “CLAM.”
