Navidad en el Barrio bringing Christmas cheer to children of inmates

What: The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with Navidad en el Barrio to ensure that dozens of children of incarcerated parents have a happy holiday.

Who: Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez and staff will join Navidad en el Barrio volunteers to distribute gifts to 34 children of 16 inmates in the Harris County Jail Reentry Program.
