Metropolitan Detention Center to Hold Holiday Party for Children of Inmates

12/14/2018

On Saturday, Dec. 15, 2018, the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) will hold a holiday party for the children of the inmates currently housed at the facility. The event will be held at the South Valley Multi-Purpose Center.

This is the 31st year that Bernalillo County has invited inmates’ children to celebrate the holiday season at a special event. This year’s festivities will include lots of holiday treats, arts and crafts, face painting, entertainment and visits with Santa.

Children will also receive a gift to take home, generously donated by Bernalillo County employees and Albuquerque-area charities and organizations. Inmates previously registered their expected guests and children ahead of the event.

Metropolitan Detention Center staff and volunteers look forward to this event every year, as a way to connect with the families in our community.

Media are invited to cover this event. Families and MDC staff will be available for interviews.
