The Harris County Precinct 1 Constable’s Office, through its Community Outreach Division, will distribute free gloves and masks to Acres Homes residents from noon-3 p.m. Tuesday at Galilee Missionary Baptist Church, 6616 D.S. Bailey Ln.
The 77088 zip code that includes Acres Homes has one of the Houston area’s highest concentrations of COVID-19 cases, so the constable’s office is providing protective equipment to residents in an attempt to slow the spread of the upper-respiratory disease caused by the new coronavirus.
“We continue to take this pandemic seriously and hope that our residents will continue to fight the spread by staying home. Should they need to venture out of the house these masks and gloves can help protect them,” Precinct 1 Constable Alan Rosen said in a news release. “When I saw Acres Homes on the list of most cases, I had to act; Doing what I can to protect people in the community.”
Acres Homes residents who do not have transportation can request assistance through Precinct 1’s Community Outreach Director, Erica Davis, at 832-286-3876.
