Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, ODOC has partnered with Securus Technologies to provide inmates two free phone calls each week while visitation was suspended. With visitation reopening, these free phone calls will continue until April 15. After April 15, phone calls will still be permitted, subject to standard rates and policies.

Mabel Bassett inmates to donate $3,000 to Pottawatomie County schools

Monday, December 10, 2018

Inmates at Mabel Bassett Correctional Center have been following our state’s public school funding crisis for some time. 

Recently, they decided to raise money for several schools in Pottawatomie County where the prison is located. Today, MBCC’s Cory Ketch, Sgt. Tyler Babbie and Capt. Juan Sanchez dropped off the first donation, $750, for Maud Elementary in Maud, Oklahoma. 

Monday’s is the first of three donations MBCC inmates will make for a total of $3,000, all of which was donated by inmates serving time at the prison. The donations are an important way to give back for the women, most of whom are mothers who had little education before they went to prison.
