RINCON - The City of Rincon will be doing its part to make the holiday season special for residents of Georgia's hospitals serving persons with developmental disabilities and behavioral health needs.
For 58 years, cities across Georgia have brought the joy of the holiday season to patients at Georgia's regional behavioral health hospitals, many of who would not receive gifts or be recognized without the Mayors' Christmas Motorcade. According to hospital staff, many of the patients at these hospitals have little, if any, support or contact with friends and family.Delete-Merge Upbodycopy
