Volunteerism

Texans Care Volunteer Day presented by Reliant

In May 2017, the Texans hosted the fifth annual Texans Care Volunteer Day, where more than 2,000 Houstonians joined players, Ambassadors, Lady Texans, TORO, Cheerleaders, and staff for a day of community service at seven locations: SEARCH’s House of Tiny Treasures, the Houston Food Bank, the Spring Branch Boys & Girls Club, YMCA Camp Cinco, Catholic Charities – The Guadalupe Center, Habitat for Humanity, and BakerRipley. Employees of site sponsors Reliant, Palais Royal, Fitness Connection, Jetco Delivery, and Miller Lite also donated their time. Volunteers celebrated the day with a post-event party presented by Miller Lite at Fuddruckers. In total, more than 4,800 hours of service were invested in the Houston community, and the event was the number one trending topic on Twitter in Houston.

Community Quarterback presented by BHP Billiton

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.

#TexansCare Program

In 2015, the Texans created an initiative to see how fans were giving back in the community. Fans and nonprofits enter by sharing a photo on social media highlighting the work they’re doing for their favorite nonprofit and tagging it #TexansCare. Each quarter, a submission is selected as the #TexansCare contest winner; winning fans receive a Texans prize pack, while the winning nonprofits receive a $2,500 donation. Since the program’s inception, $20,000 has been awarded to local nonprofits, including Books Between Kids, which serves at-risk children by providing them with books to build their own home libraries, and Kirstyn’s Krew, which offers kids in foster care a chance to have a Christmas shopping spree.

Halliburton Hometown 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.
