SHERIFF GARCIA AND HCSO DEPUTIES DISTRIBUTE PCs TO DESERVING FAMILIES
HOUSTON, TX – Sheriff Adrian Garcia and deputies at the Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) Aldine Storefront distributed computers today to 20 deserving families.
The computers, which would have otherwise been thrown away, were refurbished and donated by DeVry University.
The presentation of the computers was held at the HCSO Aldine Storefront located at 5202 Aldine Mail Route in northeast Harris County.
“I hope you use these computers to do your homework and school projects and not for playing video games,” said Sheriff Garcia to the children receiving the computers. He also urged the parents and guardians to keep a close eye on what their kids browse on the internet and who they chat with.
Many of the families are headed by grandparents raising their grandchildren. “These kids know a whole lot more about computers than I ever will,” said one of the recipients. “I am grateful and honored for these computers because I certainly couldn’t afford to buy one,” she added.
A big thank you to DeVry for the donation, to Sgt. Dean Earl for finding the deserving families to share these gifts with, and to the HCSO’s Aldine Storefront deputies for organizing today’s event.
