Giving Back


School Supply Drive

Each school year, many students aren’t equipped with the supplies needed to be successful in the classroom. To help fill this need, the Texans hold the annual School Supply Drive. Throughout Texans Training Camp presented by XFINITY, fans dropped off school supplies in collection bins or in the Go Texan Store, and Texans staff donated backpacks. More than 17,000 school supplies and nearly 500 backpacks were collected. All supplies were sorted, stuffed, and delivered to the HTY, where Cheerleaders and kids helped carry them off the Jetco Delivery truck just in time for the new school year.

First Down Dads

The First Down Dads program provides the opportunity for fathers and kids to spend one-on-one time together in a fun and interactive setting. Events like Date With My Dad, a field day, and a movie night are hosted with the intent of building stronger families by focusing on the role fathers play in their children’s lives. Coaches, Cheerleaders, and Ambassadors also participate in the events. More than 500 families participated in the First Down Dads initiative.

Harris County Street Olympics Summer Games

The Texans partner with Harris County Precinct One to support the annual Street Olympics Summer Games, a program designed to turn games that young people traditionally play on the streets, like football, basketball, and kickball, into a positive, rewarding Olympics-style competition. The Cheerleaders participated in the opening ceremony and signed autographs for the participants. The Texans donated $10,000 to support the Street Olympics program.

First Responders Appreciation & Star of Courage Award

The Texans, Ambassador J.J. Moses, and linebacker John Simon hosted an event honoring the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and the nonprofit K9s4Cops for their commitment to the community. K9s4Cops provides trained canines to law enforcement agencies across the country and internationally. Since the partnership began in 2011, nearly 20 dogs have been donated to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. At the event, Simon surprised the officers with lunch and a special invitation to attend the Liberty White Out game, which honored first responders.

Hispanic Heritage Month

The Texans hosted the annual Hispanic Heritage Day game in September aimed at highlighting Houston’s diverse Hispanic culture. Houston Grand Opera singer Octavio Moreno performed the national anthem, and the Hispanic Fan Club of the Texans, Toros Bravos presented by Verizon, held the Texas flag. Earlier in the week, the Texans hosted a Tailgate Cooking Class for teens from the Houston Texans Teen Club with guard Xavier Su’a-Filo and Hispanic Heritage Leadership Award winner Armando Perez, senior vice president of the Houston Division of H-E-B. This annual award recognizes the contributions of outstanding Hispanic leaders in each NFL market. A $2,000 donation was made in Perez’s name to the Boys & Girls Clubs.

Shop with a Texan presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors

The 2016 rookie class, including wide receiver Will Fuller, nose tackle D.J. Reader, and center Nick Martin, treated 14 kids from the Houston Texans YMCA and the Boys & Girls Clubs to a holiday shopping spree at a local Academy Sports + Outdoors. Whataburger provided breakfast, and Academy donated a $200 gift card to each child. At the end of the shopping spree, each child was surprised with a new bike and helmet.

Houston Methodist Blood Drive

Each year, the Texans team up with Houston Methodist to host blood drives in the Houston area. This year, blood drives took place in September and December and collected 848 units of blood from 1,215 donors, helping to save 2,544 lives.

Go Green

The NFL partnered locally with the Houston Super Bowl Host Committee, the Texans, and Verizon to incorporate environmental projects into Super Bowl week through the NFL Green initiative. The goal of NFL Green is to leave a positive, green legacy in the Greater Houston area after the Super Bowl. Local NFL Green projects included hosting an urban forestry tree-planting event in Bastrop, planting a pollinator garden at the Houston Zoo, distributing unserved prepared food from Super Bowl events to local shelters, and donating leftover décor and construction materials to local nonprofits for reuse and repurposing.

Halliburton Heroes

Through the Halliburton Hometown Hero Program, members of the Greater Houston community are invited to nominate a local charity that is going above and beyond to make our community a better place to live and work. From almost 17,000 nominations, 10 local charities were chosen for the extraordinary impact they’ve made in the community. Each charity received tickets to a Texans home game as well as airtime on the Texans Radio programs to promote their organization. Additionally, the three charities that received the most nominations were awarded a $5,000 donation from Halliburton.
