Students at Hoyland Elementary School received a special visit on Wednesday morning from representatives of the Harris County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office, which partnered with Houston-based Doggett Industries to provide generous donations of school supplies to several area schools.
“I’ll tell you, I am overwhelmed, and I’m definitely grateful,” said Hoyland Principal Sarahdia Johnson. “This wasn’t something that we sought out, it was just by chance this blessing happened, and it’s great to be thought of.”
As the only campus in Spring ISD selected by the Precinct 1 Constable’s Office to receive school supplies this year, Hoyland joins several other schools in neighboring Aldine ISD as beneficiaries of the program, a partnership between Precinct 1 Constable Alan Rosen’s office and Doggett Industries, which helped make the donations possible.
“Constable Rosen cares deeply about teachers and students and the community,” said Markos Snow, a representative with the Precinct 1 Constable’s Office public affairs and media division.
He explained that the constable’s office teams up throughout the year with Doggett and other local businesses and organizations to lend a helping hand with families’ back-to-school needs, as well as to distribute food for families at Thanksgiving and toys for area children during the holidays.
“Really it’s just a way for us to give back to the community, give back to schools, and be able to support our front-line workers like our teachers,” Snow said.
Principal Johnson said her students at Hoyland were excited to greet the deputies during their visit to the campus to deliver the pallets loaded high with school supplies.
“We believe that any gift is a blessing, so we receive this with open arms,” Johnson said, “and it’s definitely going to go a long way to help prepare our students for this academic year.”
