Wish Upon A Star

Kids of all ages from the Sacramento Children’s Receiving Home wrote out their Christmas wishes on a star. Staff from the Division of Juvenile Justice made more than a dozen of them come true.


Staff from the Policy, Program, Procedures and Regulation (PPP&R) unit collected “stars” from the Home, on which children listed what they would like for Christmas. The office “elves” then went shopping to make many of the “wishes”come true. Last week was deliver day. The staff loaded bags and boxes into a caravan, delivering them to the front door of the Receiving Home, which is near the DJJ’s South Sacramento headquarters.  The staff hopes that this is the beginning of a new tradition, with more staff invited to join in for next year.
