Midstate Correctional Facility Donates Holiday Arrangements to Local Nursing Home

On December 20, holiday wreaths and centerpieces were delivered to residents of the Charles T. Sitrin Home long term care cottages in New Hartford, NY. The holiday arrangements were created by the inmates in the Midstate Correctional Facility's vocational horticulture program. Staff and residents were very gracious and thankful to receive such a "thoughtful donation". They also commented on "how beautiful" the holiday decorations were.

"We have never received a donation like this, and it means so much," said the Activities Director who accepted the donation on behalf of the long term care unit.
