DORCHESTER � Staff and inmates of the Westmorland Institute have raised $4,000 for tsunami relief.
The minimum-security prison raised the money by serving a hot lunch to the public on Thursday. For $11, visitors got a t-shirt and a plate of rice, bread and water. The meal was meant to represent what victims of the tsunamis would be eating.
At least 65 of the prison's 210 inmates, some who've been convicted for crimes like robbery or assault, pitched in to make the fundraiser happen. Clinton Hollet is one of the inmates who volunteered."
