HPD Officers Partner With Local Church To Donate Supplies To Tyler County Officials

October 4, 2005 -- Houston Police Department officers recently traveled to the Tyler County Justice Center in Livingston, Texas, to deliver two truck loads of water and food to be used as part of the relief efforts involving residents of that area affected by Hurricane Rita. The donation was in response to a request by officials with the Office of Emergency Management in Tyler County.

The donated supplies were gathered as part of a joint effort between the Houston Police Department and Pastor Jim Stern of the Gulf Haven Seventh Day Adventist Church. Both organizations had food and water that had been stockpiled during emergency preparations in expectation of the arrival of Hurricane Rita. " We were glad to provide these resources to our less fortunate neighbors" said Lieutenant Mike Waterwall of HPD.
