It may seem like just a carnival, a day of fun, games, and celebration, but it’s also a day of reconciliation and restoration for families. It’s a day where inmate fathers, mothers, can reunite and be real parents to their children. Amid all of the fun of the day, parents have a chance to ask their children’s forgiveness and invite them to know the love and salvation available to them by accepting Christ. It can be the catalyst that heals a family and breaks not only the cycle of sin but what can be a generational cycle of incarceration.
All of that requires an army of volunteers to pull off. At least 500 are needed each year to make it happen.
