Facilities in Amherst, Bedford, Campbell, Halifax, & Lynchburg


Blue Ridge Regional Jail Authority staff members visited the Heartland Nursing facility earlier today to spread some Holiday cheer and to give each resident a bag of goodies. All 93 residents received a bag containing shampoo, toothpaste, candy, body wash, word puzzle books, a stuffed animal, as well as other hygiene items. These bags were made possible by donations received from our jail staff, as well as friends and family. While there, our staff joined the residents for the singing of several Christmas carols.
