Through their Hope for the Holidays program, Madison Correctional Institution has been donating items to Madison County Job & Family Services for more than 20 years. This year, offenders knitted 100 hats and 25 lap blankets, made 435 bookmarks, donated toys and gifts, and presented a check for $1,600. Offenders hold fundraisers throughout the year. The institution’s staff also buys and donates gifts.

Offenders and staff members from Madison Correctional Institution, as well as representatives from Madison County Job & Family Services, pose with the gifts the insitution donated to benefit Madison County children.
