The southern portion of the United States has been facing more than their fair share of hardships over recent years. The most recent has been the severe flooding that has been forcing a deeply negative impact on southerners and their pockets. A seemingly countless line of storms have dumped an enormous amount of rain causing flooding in areas that were already suffering from poverty, leaving them completely stricken with poverty.

One of the largest companies to recently make a generous contribution to help ease the financial hardships of those that have been affected by the flooding is Securus Technologies, a communications and prison supply company that is based out of Dallas Texas.
An article was recently published by the writers for PRN Newswire discussing the surprise donations of free phone calls from Securus Technologies to prisoners that currently live in one of the more than 3,400 different facilities that they contract with. The CEO issued a statement saying that the company will be allowing each of the prisoners to make a single free phone call every day until September 7th, so that they will be able to stay in touch with their loved ones during this difficult time.
Although the article says it outright, it is clear by the announcement of this more than generous donation, that the CEO Rick Smith and the company as a whole understand that providing high quality communications and support to prison inmates and their families is a very important part of the overall culture and success of prisons and detention facilities. The company has estimated that the overall value of the free calls will reach $350,000.
