This annual outreach alleviates financial distress on our local families by distributing free shoes, backpacks, and other school supplies to every school-aged child in attendance in order to prepare them for the new school year. We have provided hundreds of shoes and backpacks to families.

I am so pleased for the opportunity to express my gratitude for Compassion for Community. Their impact on our community has been so impactful specifically with their efforts in providing shoes to children during their annual “Back to School” event.  As a community partner I have seen firsthand the effort and care they put into impacting the lives of families in our community.

We, the Harris Sheriff’s Office Community Engagement Unit had the opportunity to collaborate with Compassion for Community during the Back to School Outreach in 2022.   My team from the Sheriff’s Office were on sight to further our bandwidth within our local community to engage in dialogue, increasing our support and distributing toys to the community.

My entire staff was impressed by the organization, volunteer base and by the supplies of shoes and backpacks provided by Compassion for Community.  It is this type of involvement that strengthens and brings hope to our society.  This organization does not just “talk the talk”, but they “walk the walk”.

The Compassion for Community group delineates the true meaning of the word “Synergy”. This organization comprehends that “Synergy” is a term that means that one can do more with less. They exhibited, that “Synergy” can be achieved through the act of teamwork. They validated that more actions can be completed when a team of people are working together than when one person is working by his or herself.

Our Harris County Sherriff’s Office – Community Engagement Unity looks forward to collaborating on a yearly basis with Compassion for Community.
