Always there when Houstonians are in need, the Houston Texans organization has once again stepped up their relief efforts for those impacted by last week's winter storm.
Janice S. McNair and the Houston Texans announced a $500,000 donation to the Greater Houston/Harris County 2021 Winter Storm Relief Fund.
“We are happy to lend a helping hand to our fellow neighbors during challenging times like these,” said Texans Chair Janice S. McNair. “I’d like to express my sincere gratitude to Mayor Turner and Judge Hidalgo for their leadership of the relief fund and including us in the recovery efforts. This city is full of strong and resilient people who will benefit greatly from these funds.”
The funds will be made available to focus on grant-making to local nonprofits that will target the unmet needs of families who need additional assistance with home repairs and temporary housing.
“We consider everyone who lives and works in Harris County to be part of the Texans family. As such, we are delighted to offer our support to the effort,” said Texans Chairman and CEO Cal McNair. “Houstonians continue to show time and again that when we act as one team, with a united mission, we can accomplish anything. Helping our neighbors get back on their feet after this unprecedented winter storm is no exception.”
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner named Cal McNair to the Greater Houston/Harris County 2021 Winter Storm Relief Fund Advisory Board. The committee will oversee and administer the grant distribution process.
