Calls from Home and COVID-19

-1x-1

CALLS FROM HOME EVERY WEEK

All programs and visits are shutdown in jails and prison across the province in response to COVID-19. We’re continuing to hear that conditions inside are not great, and at this time those inside need your support right now.

From now until this pandemic is over, every Wednesday from 7-8pm, CFRC Prison Radio will be playing your messages, shout-outs and song requests for local prisoners on CFRC 101.9FM in Kingston. Our signal reaches Collins Bay, Joyceville, and most areas of Bath, Millhaven and Cape Vincent Correctional in Upstate NY.

Please call us today at 613-417-3359 and leave a message. Or tune in on Wednesday and call the request line at 613-533-CFRC. Feel free to reach out with tips about what’s going on and how we can support from the outside.
