DJJ in the Community: Augusta Family Donation

February 4, 2019

Story by Reentry Services' Andre' Cheek-Castleberry

On behalf of the entire Department of Juvenile Justice's Office of Reentry Services, we would like to thank the Family YMCA of Greater Augusta for working with the staff of District Seven to provide unique bedroom sets for deserving families in the Augusta area. 

Because of the generosity of spirit and time, nine beds which included the mattresses, sheets, pillows, and comforters were constructed and delivered so that the parents and kids each could have a warm bed for the cold Georgia winter. 

It has been said that the Department of Juvenile Justice is more than a job, it is a family. Through heartfelt examples of love such as this donation, the DJJ family extends out to the community to make Georgia a better place for us all.  Thanks again to everyone's help and generosity for this Augusta family.
