WESTBORO — Worcester County Sheriff Lewis Evangelidis recently provided a work crew through the Inmate Community Service Program to the Westboro Senior Center.

Inmates painted the kitchen and food prep area and helped remove snow from entryways and walkways, saving the senior center an estimated $8,000 in labor and maintenance costs.

The WCSO Inmate Community Service Program provides free labor to municipalities and nonprofit organizations by nonviolent, non-sex offender individuals who have earned a place in the program.

“We truly appreciate Sheriff Evangelidis providing the Inmate Community Service Program to paint our kitchen at the senior center and to remove snow from our walkways. The Sheriff’s inmate work crew was very respectful and did an outstanding job, and we are very grateful for the many thousands of dollars this program has saved us in labor and maintenance costs,” said Senior Center Executive Director Alma DeManche.
