Texarkana Homeless Coalition Partners Launch ‘Operation Responsible Compassion’

0

We have seen a large increase in panhandling around the Texarkana area. Texarkana residents are caring and compassionate, but we want to make sure the help we are giving is doing some real good for those in need.

Press Release:

Texarkana — As we approach the holiday season, there is a higher visibility of
panhandlers throughout our area. We are a generous community and compassion for
others is very much needed, especially given the past year. Unfortunately, one-off
donations delivered to street corners, parks, or other locations provide short-lived relief
and can delay or divert people from seeking services that can help end their
homelessness.

As a result, the Texarkana Homeless Coalition is launching Operation Responsible
Compassion. This public community campaign is intended to help educate the public
about options to ensure their compassion truly provides sustainable-help to those in
need. Responsible Compassion will effectively drive away those looking to take
advantage of your goodwill. Working to eliminate panhandling also helps to ensure the
safety of drivers, to keep them focused on the road, and keep pedestrians safe. Let us
all help to create a better and safer Texarkana, by being responsible as we all try to
help those who need assistance.

To learn more, please visit our Texarkana Homeless Coalition website to donate and
designate your donation to whichever organization that offers services you are
interested in helping with. We will ensure that the donations are used for their intended
purpose, helping those who need it most. You can also obtain resources such as our
Pocket Pal that includes information for food, shelter, housing opportunity, a place to get
clothes and sometimes furniture, medical assistance, and assistance with finding
employment.
