A reserve Liberty County sheriff’s deputy, William Hall, and his wife, Jeanette, through their Huffman-based business, All Pro Asphalt, handed out 100 backpacks and school supplies to children Saturday outside of the Gallery Furniture showroom on I-45 in Houston.
“William has been wanting to do this for quite a while, so we just decided to go ahead and do it. We contacted Mattress Mack at Gallery Furniture and he thought it was a wonderful idea,” Jeanette Hall said.
The backpacks were given to any child who requested one, no questions asked.
“We got there at 10 a.m. and by 2 p.m., all of the backpacks were gone,” she said. “We gave them to any child who came in the door.”
Earlier this year, the Halls were involved in a bike giveaway to a Cleveland girl who had shown kindness and respect for law enforcement officers during National Police Week. She handed out bottles of water and treats to any officer who passed by her house.
