Houston Texans YMCA

Since the building opened in 2011, the Houston Texans and the YMCA of Greater Houston have worked hand in hand to make sure this facility serves the needs of the Greater Third Ward residents. Whether it is healthy eating information from the Texans team nutritionist, instilling the values of the NFL PLAY 60, or providing once-in-a-lifetime experiences to school-age kids, the Texans are constantly looking for ways to impact the entire community with our unique resources.

Houston Texans YMCA Holiday Party
The Houston Texans hosted a holiday party for 100 kids from the Boys & Girls Clubs and Houston Texans YMCA in the new Houston Texans Enrichment Zone at the Houston Zoo. Kids enjoyed a showing of TORO’s Training Camp and then took part in holiday activities, including pictures with Santa TORO, cookie-decorating, writing to Santa, and a hot-cocoa station. A delicious holiday meal was served courtesy of Pappas Restaurants and the Lady Texans, and Texans player John Simon helped hand out gifts to each child, which were donated by the Lady Texans and Texans staff.

Shop with a Texan presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors
The 2015 rookie class, including Kevin Johnson, Jaelen Strong, and Benardrick McKinney, treated 14 children 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 courtesy of Academy.

Flag Football Team
The Texans created a flag football program at the HTY with the gift of a $200,000 youth football grant in 2013. This program will allow nearly 4,000 kids each year to learn the game of football and enjoy friendly competition. This opportunity not only gives children an activity to keep them physically moving, but also cultivates a family atmosphere, bringing the community together through the sport of football.

School Supply Drive presented by Toshiba
Throughout Houston Texans Training Camp presented by XFINITY, the Texans Foundation hosts the School Supply Drive presented by Toshiba. Fans are encouraged to bring school supplies when they attended practice during training camp and all supplies are donated to the Houston Texans YMCA. In 2015, more than 20,000 school supplies were collected and 450 backpacks donated. In 2016, 26,000 items and more than $2,000 in cash were donated. Texans staff stuffed more than 500 backpacks full of supplies and delivered them to the HTY just in time for the new school year.

Courage House
In the fall of 2015, the HTY was named an official NFL Courage House by the Ed Block Courage Award Foundation and the Houston Texans Foundation. Courage Houses are facilities in NFL cities that provide support to abused or at-risk youth in the community. In addition, the Ed Block Foundation annually bestows the Courage Award to a player from each team who exemplifies a commitment to sportsmanship and displays tremendous courage. Former Texans Courage Award winners David Quessenberry and Seth Payne were on hand for the Houston Texans YMCA Courage House dedication ceremony, where the HTY received a $10,000 grant and a plaque of recognition from the Ed Block Foundation.

BMC Software Air Attack
Beginning during the 2009 season, for every touchdown pass completed by the Houston Texans, BMC Software’s Air Attack program made a donation to the Houston Texans Foundation. Thanks to the BMC Air Attack program, a total of $75,000 was donated to build the Houston Texans YMCA sports field, which opened in spring of 2011.
