Liberty County reserve deputy, wife donate 100 backpacks for students

Gallery Furniture owner Mattress Mack is pictured with Jeanette and William Hall during a backpack giveaway the Halls hosted on Saturday at Gallery Furniture. William Hall is a reserve deputy for the Liberty County Sheriff's Office. He and his wife own All Pro Asphalt, a Huffman-based business.

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.

The Halls were helped Saturday by their four children – Jade, William, Brandon and Italy. Though their business is based in Huffman, they service an area that includes Liberty County.

“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.
