The State Board of Pardons and Paroles has answered the call from the Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) by providing new toys to Georgia’s foster children this Christmas.

In just a short span of less than two weeks, the Board collected more than 150 new toys from staff in central office in Atlanta. DFCS picked up the toys December 18th just in time to get them delivered to foster child throughout Georgia.

Executive Director of Parole Michael Nail says each year the Board participates in the Marine Toys for Tots Campaign, but this year the agency answered DFCS’ call.

“When we received the request from DFCS Director Bobby Cagle, we knew immediately we wanted to assist and help brighten Christmas for a foster child somewhere in Georgia. Our employees always come through, regardless of the need,” stated Nail.

Cagle distributed a memorandum December 9th asking for assistance from state agencies, citing a shortage of gifts for foster children throughout Georgia.

“The parole board, like many agencies, came through for us this year. The response was overwhelming. We knew we could count on parole employees,” Cagle said. “We look forward to partnering with Pardons and Paroles on other future important efforts.”

Cagle says his agency was able to meet its goals this year.
