On Saturday, April 28, 2018, The Salvation Army Pasadena Corps Community Center welcomed the United Way of Greater Houston and the Houston Texans for their sixth annual Texans Care Volunteer Day. The Texans Care Volunteer Day took place at seven locations across the Greater Houston community, including The Salvation Army.
This annual event offered Texans fans the opportunity to volunteer around the city alongside the Texans Cheerleaders, TORO, Texans staff and Houston Texans players.
Beautifying Pasadena Corps
At The Salvation Army Pasadena Corps Community Center, volunteers, including Texans players Stephen Anderson and Zach Coque, mulched flowerbeds and the playground area, power washed sidewalks as well as re-painted rooms throughout the building. The Mayor of Pasadena Jeff Wagner and Pasadena First Lady Ginny Wagner were also on hand volunteering.
Over 2,000 volunteers, including Texans players, cheerleaders, ambassadors and fans, helped make a difference and gave back to the city.
The other participating organizations included the Houston Texans YMCA, the Houston Food Bank, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston, the Houston Zoo, the Santa Maria Hostel, and the Avondale House.
