Anthony Haynes traveled to the Kinross Correctional Facility in Kincheloe, Michigan and presented a CCEF presentation to the National Lifer’s Association inmate group as well as the inmates at the camp. 

All inmates in attendance were very appreciative and excited about being a part of CCEF to include being able to donate to the foundation and help kids of the incarcerated go to college.  The inmates donated $79.54 (Received), with $500.00 pledged to be donated from the inmate PBA Association.
