Legacy Community Health and Comcast Help 1,500 Houston Kids Go Back to School

HOUSTON – Legacy Community Health, one of Texas’ largest community health centers, in partnership with Comcast, is providing backpacks full of supplies to 1,500 of its pediatric patients ahead of the new school year. In addition to being a sponsor of Mayor Turner’s annual “Back 2 School Fest” this Saturday, Legacy is hosting its own events, which include face painting and haircuts, throughout the month.

“We look forward to this time of year because it’s easy to see the good we’re doing for the community,” said Lizzette Tienda, Legacy’s community relations director. “Kids and parents walk away with smiles. Reinvesting back in the communities we serve is one of our guiding principles.”

Legacy employees have donated $3,400 to help fund the back-to-school giveaways.
