TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Department of Corrections will donate nearly 7,000 inmate-made toys to children in the Big Bend area this holiday season. Toys will arrive at DOC's Central Office Tuesday morning and will be distributed to local organizations that will deliver toys to needy children.
Inmates at eight prisons in the North Florida area made the toys from materials donated by non-profit and civic organizations. Toy-making is a year-round job assignment for more than 80 inmates at Columbia, Cross City, Lawtey, Madison, Mayo, New River and Union Correctional Institutions, as well as North Florida Reception Center.
