Texans players, Reliant & Texans staff to volunteer at Houston Food Bank
HOUSTON – The Houston Texans and Reliant will team up for the seventh annual Texans Care with Reliant community service project at the Houston Food Bank from 8:00 a.m. - Noon CDT. Texans players Lestar Jean, Earl Mitchell, Wade Smith and Jon Weeks will join staff from both organizations and the Food Bank to package food for distribution throughout the Houston area.
Reliant has been a Championship Partner of the Houston Texans since the team’s inception. Texans Care with Reliant has become an annual tradition for the two organizations. In past years, they have teamed up to renovate homes of low-income Houston families with the help of Rebuilding Together Houston.
This year’s event at the Houston Food Bank will benefit hundreds of Houston-area families who face daily challenges of hunger and improper nutrition. The Houston Food Bank feeds 137,000 people each week by distributing food through more than 400 hunger relief agencies in 18 southeast Texas counties, including church pantries, homeless shelters, safe havens and nutrition sites for children and the elderly. Thanks to strong community partnerships, the Houston Food Bank is able to stretch every $1 donation to provide a full day of meals for one person.
