The League City Police Officers Association is collecting clothes and toys for 4 abandoned League City girls - Please Give

I tend to not make solicitations, but this is a special case in League City.

In the Gospel of St. Matthew, Chapter 25, we read the great story of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He lists a number of things that we should be doing. As one example, He says I was hungry and you fed me. People said when did we see you hungry and feed you or did not feed you? Jesus was quick to answer, “When you do it for the least among you, you do it for me.”

These four girls are the least among us and they need our help. I am asking my readers to donate what they can.

You can contact me at: omarkum@markumgroup.com or drop off your donated clothes/toys at the League City Police Department.

Thank you.

LEAGUE CITY, TX – On December 20, 2006, at 8:10 a.m., League City Police Officers and Paramedics were dispatched to the 400 block of Perkins Avenue in reference to two young girls walking around in the street naked – one of the children was reportedly bleeding from the hand. Officers arrived and found that a Good Samaritan had provided the children with diapers and t-shirts prior to the officer’s arrival. The girls, ages 1 and 2, were examined by EMS. The 2 y/o was treated for a small cut on her finger, but no other injuries were found.

Approximately 45 minutes later, League City Officers located the apartment where the children lived and found the house to be filthy and unsafe. The girls’ mother and grandmother were both inside the apartment sleeping. Two more girls, ages 7 years and 6 months, were also living in the apartment. A criminal investigation into the endangerment of these children is pending.

Due to the unsafe living conditions and the lack of child care, officers contacted Child Protective Services. They responded to the League City Police Department and placed all four of the girls with a foster family. The League City Police Officers Association has begun collecting money and clothes for these children. We are seeking any additional clothes, toys, or child care products for the children and foster family. Persons wishing to make donations are encouraged to drop items by the League City Police Department Dispatch at 500 W. Walker Street, League City, TX 77573. For questions about the donations, please contact LCPOA President Officer Sean Arena at 281-332-2566 x. 885.
