for the graduates, their families, officers, Administrative personnel, and civilians. There were more than 400 people served and they were thrilled for the opportunity to enter the prison after being shut down for over two years due to covid. 

The reception was held on the 3rd-floor deck, under the guidance of the Warden, Coordinator Ms. Weathers, Officers, staff, and teachers. 

Above all the UBB opened with a prayer conducted by Pastor Marcos (Orange, NJ). Afterwards, Pastor Marcos and the UBB volunteers served the food. Altogether all volunteers who attended agreed it was an excellent opportunity to serve God.  In the UBB, we give all the honor and glory to God for giving us this chance.
