Often, we don’t think about the amount of suffering that the children of inmates have to go through. During the holidays, incarcerated parents are sometimes allowed a little bit of extra time with their little ones. But even then, it isn’t enough for the kids to properly spend time with their parents that are in jail.
Dodgers star Justin Turner showed the world how important it is to keep these kids in mind. Turner went to the L.A County Jail in Lynwood, CA. to hand out quite a few Christmas presents. L.A County Jail has a special program that rewards female inmates who enroll into educational programs while doing their jail time.

This year, their reward was given to their children. They all got brand new bicycles for Christmas, and Turner was there to help give them out.
“This is what it’s all about,” Turner said … “seeing a smile on a child’s face is the best feeling.”
The Dream Center partnered along with Angelus Temple gave away 2,500 bicycles out to children with Turner recently as well.
