HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -
Nearly 250 Hancock County foster children celebrated Christmas early this year. On Sunday the Hancock County Youth Court and the Hancock County Sheriff's Department held their first ever Christmas party for the children.
"We wanted to be able to give all of our children Christmas gifts. And create a special party for them," Chief Court Administrator Chere Hayward said.
Foster children ranging from four months to 18-years-old attended the event held at the Bay St. Louis Community Center.
"All the children are either in foster care or with relatives," Hayward said. "This was a happy time for us and them."
There were games, prizes awarded, a mobile video game van, laser tag, horse drawn wagon rides and Santa arrived on the Bay St. Louis fire truck.
The children also watched the Vonderbruegge Family and Friends sing Christmas music and dance.
Plus a ballet group performed the "Nutcracker".
"We were able to give every one of our foster children four to five gifts each, due to great community support," Hayward said.
The Hancock County Sheriff's Department stood outside of Walmart collecting donations for the children and community members donated toys.
"With the money we collected, we called all the teenagers and purchased exactly what they wanted," Hayward said. "We owe a special thanks to the Hancock County Sheriff's Department, community members, all event participants, Kristen Blanchard and Friends decorated the event and Heather Jackson helped organize the entire event."
Seeing the smiles on all the kid's faces made the event worthwhile, Hayward said.
