The Southeastern Ohio Correctional Facility donated 25 box fans to the Lancaster Red Cross chapter, 10TV News reported on Friday.
Rick Chuvalas, Deputy Warden of Operations, said the inmates run a doggie daycare. Facility employees pay them to watch their dogs.

Chuvalas said the facility has a reputation of being a good neighbor to Fairfield County, and that donations like this give the inmates a sense of accomplishment
