Teneshia Hudspeth

The Harris County Clerk’s Office (HCCO) will be collecting toys for children
and gifts for teens during its first annual Clerks for Christmas Toy Drive, December 1-11,
2020, benefiting the Children’s Assessment Center (CAC). The CAC serves nearly 5,000 young victims of sexual abuse.

“What better time to help our community than the present. COVID-19 is affecting so many
families,” said Harris County Clerk Teneshia Hudspeth. “We hope that our Toy Drive provides some holiday cheer to the children served by the Children’s Assessment Center.”

The CAC’s mission is to provide a professional, compassionate and coordinated approach to
the treatment of sexually abused children and to serve as an advocate for all children in our community.

“Every holiday season, we depend on the generosity of individuals to ensure this special time of the year will be filled with joyful memories for the children we serve,” said Danielle Igbani. “We are delighted that the Harris County Clerk’s Office is hosting a toy drive to benefit our clients.”

HCCO is accepting donations from employees and the public at their main office located at
201 Caroline, Suite 460, during business hours. Due to COVID-19 health guidelines, please
call 713-274-8600 to arrange a drop off time. All donations will be taken to the CAC on
Monday, December 14.
