More than 80 juvenile offenders packed meals for the needy Wednesday morning, partnering with a nonprofit to give back to the community.
There are roughly 170 juvenile offenders at the Cuyahoga Hills Juvenile Correctional Facility, ranging in age from 12 to 21. It is one of three state-run juvenile facilities remaining in Ohio.
When asked if they would like to volunteer, more than 80 teens signed up — packing 50,000 meals to be delivered to food banks in Cleveland and Akron.
“They are kids at heart, so anytime you do something for them that’s out of the ordinary, you see a different side of them,” said Scott Sooy, the facility’s community service director.
