TEXANS ANNOUNCE $750,000 PLEDGE TO THE BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS FOR NEW TEEN FACILITY

Pledge is the largest single donation to the Boys & Girls Club by a professional sports team in Houston

 

HOUSTON – The Houston Texans are proud to announce a $750,000 pledge to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston to build a new facility designed specifically for teens. In its longstanding partnership with the Boys & Girls Club, the Texans are honored to build a space that will exclusively serve Houston’s young adults.
 
“We are proud to continue this longstanding partnership with the Houston Texans and extremely grateful for this gift that will allow us to build a new facility that furthers both organizations’ missions to be champions for Houston’s youth,” Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston President & CEO Kevin Hattery said. “Through this donation we will be able to create an incredible new space that features a wellness center, a college and career center, a counseling office, a game room and a music studio to serve Houston teenagers.”
 
The $750,000 donation is the largest single donation to the Boys & Girls Club by a Houston professional sports team and places the Texans in the top five donors to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston. The new facility will be the first Boys & Girls Teen Club in Houston and the first in the nation to be supported by an NFL team.
 
“We saw a need in the community for a facility and programming that is specifically designed to meet the developmental needs of Houston teenagers. The Houston Texans Teen Club will help area teens to navigate this often difficult age and enable them to transition more effectively to adulthood,” Houston Texans President Jamey Rootes said. “We are excited to continue our longstanding partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston by building this new facility which will have a tremendous impact on Houston’s youth for many years to come.”
 
Construction on the new facility will begin immediately as the new teen club is scheduled to open in July of this year.
