More than 100 dedicated volunteers who bring faith based recovery, life skills, arts and educational assistance programs to the incarcerated population in Montgomery County were honored recently at the Detention Services Division's annual Volunteer Appreciation Ceremony at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility. The theme of the event was “Ordinary People, Extraordinary Hearts.”
For more than 30 years, the Department of Correction and Rehabilitation has hosted the event to recognize and thank volunteers for providing thousands of hours of dedicated support services to the Correctional Facility and to the returning citizens of Montgomery County.
This year’s Volunteer of the Year was Deacon Frank Salatto of St. Raphael Parish in Rockville. Deacon Salatto is a longtime volunteer, with more than 20 years of service who is known for his dedication and always having a kind word of encouragement for staff.
