Christmas can be a particularly tough time for those who have loved ones behind bars.
Geneva County Jail Administrator, Carl Rowe, organized a party for the children of inmates.
With the help of the Geneva High School Anchor Club and the Geneva County retired volunteers, new toys and clothes were bought for some 40 children.
Thelma Kilpatrick has a daughter who is in jail. She is raising her two young grand-daughters. "I think it’s real nice for the kids. I think it is beautiful. I believe it is something appreciated and is real nice," she said.
Besides presents, members of the community helped prepare food for the Geneva County Jail Christmas Party.
