Volunteerism presented by Chevron
In 2018, Chevron became the Official Volunteerism Partner of the Houston Texans. This unique partnership focuses on engaging Chevron's large workforce in Houston with the Texans community initiatives. The partnership includes the participation of Chevron volunteers at Texans community events, such as the Running of the Bulls, Texans Care Volunteer Day and the Chevron Market Pantry at the Houston Texans Teen Club.
Texans Care Volunteer Day Presented by Chevron
The ninth annual Texans Care Volunteer Day included options to volunteer in person or virtually. Fans, players, Legends, Lady Texans, TORO, Cheerleaders and staff were invited to take part in volunteer projects across the city at sites including the Houston Food Bank, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston, YMCA Camp Cullen and Hermann Park. Individuals were also invited to create hospital kits and kids' courtroom kits for the clients served by the Houston Area Women's Center and drop them off at the United Way. Fans could participate virtually by sharing on social media what they were doing to support the community and sharing messages of gratitude and appreciation for others who display the #TexansCare spirit. This day of giving would not have been possible without the commitment from our partners: Chevron, the United Way of Greater Houston, Ashley Home Store, BMW, Apache, Miller Lite and Whataburger. In total, 600 fans volunteered, and the event reached more than 3 million people.
In honor of the memory of Texans Founder, Chairman and CEO Robert C. McNair (1937–2018), the Texans established Founder's Day. Each year, on October 6, members of the Texans organization will take a moment to reflect on Mr. McNair's legacy and will unite to make a difference in the Houston community. In 2020, the Texans created a memorable moment in the lives of Houston ISD second graders, virtually reading to children during their school day. Players, Legends, Cheerleaders, TORO and Texans employees participated in a virtual reading program in 100 classrooms. In addition to the virtual readings, TORO and Cheerleaders visited one of Houston ISD's remote learning centers to read to the students in person. Overall, Founder's Day had an impact on nearly 2,100 students.
Texans Care Volunteer Program
Through the Texans Care Volunteer Program, Texans employees devoted their time to projects and initiatives that bring positive change to the community. This year, staff volunteered by donating school supplies to children in need ahead of the new school year and reading books to children in HISD schools.
