BILLERICA, Mass. – With school starting across the county, members of the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office staff recently distributed nearly 40 backpacks to children and younger siblings of individuals incarcerated at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction.
On Saturday, August 18, leaders of the MSO Family Support Services Unit and Education Department spent the day meeting with families as they picked up backpacks filled with supplies and chose from a wide array of age-appropriate books. The backpacks, supplies and books were generously donated by Concord Prison Outreach, which works with the office on a number of initiatives. In addition, The Discovery Museum in Acton donated family passes.
