DOC Gift


Department of Corrections Annual Holiday Giving


This year, as in years past, there has been a holiday tradition where the Department of Correction (DOC) staff at the different institutions, DOC Central Office, DOC Training Academy and Central Transportation adopt a DCF Area Office and buy gifts for the kids. The Area Office staff provides DOC tags with the child’s first name, age, wish list items and assigned Social Worker. DOC staff will then take a tag and purchase the gifts for the youth. When the gifts are collected, DOC loads them in a box truck and delivers them to the area offices.


Here is the DOC facilities and Area Office list for this year:

  • Hartford Correctional Center and New Britain Area Office

  • Garner and Danbury Area Office

  • DOC Central Office and Hartford Area Office

  • Robinson Correctional Institute and Manchester Area Office

  • DOC Training Academy and Meriden Area Office

  • Osborn Correctional institute and Middletown Area Office

  • Bridgeport Correctional Center and Norwalk Area Office

  • York Correctional Institute, Brooklyn Correctional Institute, Corrigan Correctional Institute and Norwich Area Office

  • Manson Youth Institute and Waterbury Area Office

  • Corrigan Correctional Institute and Willimantic Area Office

  • Central Transportation Unit and Bridgeport Area Office

  • Northern Correctional institute and Milford Area Office

We are very grateful for this holiday tradition and it’s a nice way for the two agencies to support our DCF youth.
