BCF Distributes Hampers During Correctional Services Employees’ Month


Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF) employees, comprising officers and civilians, distributed several hampers to sick and shut-in individuals in Dennery, Mon Repos, Desruisseaux, and Laborie.

The hamper distribution occurred during the just-ended Correctional Services Employees’ Month in May.

“We wanted to be a bit more impactful in the community. Therefore, Officers, along with a few corporate sponsors, aided by donating items that we were able to deliver to 6 homes,” a BCF release explained.

BCF staff also visited schools in Ciceron, Dennery, and Vieux Fort in May to read to students.

Activities to mark Services Employees’ Month started on May 8 with a church service at the BCF.

The facility officially opened in January 2003.
