Mount Hope Prison Ministries has tried to bridge the gap between parent and child at Christmastime for about 15 years, holding an annual party for the children of inmates at the Washington County Detention Center.
"They enjoy it. It's just a time to get out and relax and have a Christmas party," Assistant Director Wanda Sue Singleton said of the party called Tree of Hope.
