A huge facet of the Houston Texans organization is to do great things for Houston, and one of the exciting opportunities we offer to support that goal is #TexansCare Volunteer Day.
This annual event being held this year on April 28 offers Texans fans the opportunity to volunteer around the city of Houston alongside the Texans Cheerleaders, TORO, Texans staff and of course - your favorite Houston Texans players.
This year, the Texans will be visiting the following organizations:
The Houston Texans YMCA
The YMCA of Greater Houston offers after school programs and takes pride in building strong kids, strong families and strong communities where values are always in play.
