District 2 Probation & Parole hosts first children's Christmas party

The magic of Santa Claus
Glenda Thomson, District 2 Manager, Probation & Parole

On December 12, 2018, District 2 hosted the first children's Christmas party for offenders and their kiddos. Santa was none other than NICI Correctional Officer Emmett Wilson, who passed out toys to 42 children!

One lucky offender received a fully decorated live Christmas tree, and two additional families won WinCo Food gift cards to help them provide a special Christmas dinner for their families.

Our photographer donated her time and resources for family photos with Santa, and Orofino inmates constructed our winter wonderland cardboard props! Thanks to all that sponsored our party: P1FCU, The Rising Sun, National Armory, and Home Depot and Toys for Tots.

We even had an offender volunteer her time to help serve cake to all those that attended. Nothing brings in the Christmas spirit like seeing the eyes of a child light up when they see Santa. It is magical! From our District to yours.......Merry Christmas!!
