Since our founding in 2002, the Texans have supported the United Way of Greater Houston. Annually, the organization achieves 100 percent participation in its internal campaign from players, coaches, owners, and front-office staff. During the December 18 game, Texans founder, chairman, and CEO Bob McNair, vice chairman and COO Cal McNair, and president Jamey Rootes presented a check for $750,000 to United Way CEO Anna Babin. The Texans are the top contributors to the United Way in the NFL and the number one per capita supporter of the United Way in Houston.

Tackle Duane Brown teamed up with the United Way of Greater Houston to encourage more than 800 children from local schools to get excited about reading at the United Way Reading Rally. Brown visited two local elementary schools, where he read books to the students and spoke to them about the importance of reading.

The Community Quarterback Award is an opportunity for the Texans to recognize outstanding volunteers from local United Way agencies whose work makes Houston a better place. In 2016, David Baldwin was chosen as the Community Quarterback for his 25 years of service to The Center, a not-for-profit agency serving persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. A $50,000 donation was made to the organization in his name, and a reception was held in his honor and attended by tackle Duane Brown. Ten other finalists also received $5,000 contributions to their organizations for their service.
