On Tuesday, Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta continued his weekly Taco Tuesday food donations, albeit this time to YMCA workers.

Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta has continually led the charge in assisting the community during the novel coronavirus pandemic. Fertitta has speared the Taco Tuesday food donations through his famed Cadillac Bar, which have come during a time of need for many families who have been ravished by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’ve seen Fertitta expand these efforts across several different work sectors, including law enforcement, Houston’s METRO Operators, and much more. The Rockets also provided a touching Mother’s Day experience for those in the healthcare industry, as the Rockets provided Mother’s Day meals to frontline workers at the Memorial Hermann hospital, located in Houston’s Memorial City.

Last week the Rockets expanded these efforts to the homeless and sheltered at Brays Crossing, which is an apartment complex that assists recently discovered homeless men and women. On Tuesday, Fertitta’s “Taco Me Crazy” food truck paid a visit to YMCA workers to express appreciation and gratitude for them also.

These workers were located at the food distribution center which was hosted by The Association for the Advancement of Mexican Americans at George I. Sanchez Charter School. The food donations were also extended to additional YMCA staff from stations that work and operate on different days.

To say Fertitta and the Rockets have been active in helping families during this tough time would be a major understatement. We’ve seen the Rockets host numerous blood drives, while also seeking to spread the word of the importance of giving blood during these times.

To that point, Rockets CEO Tad Brown has openly spoken about the significance of assisting others and we’ve heard Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni express the significance of donating blood. All in all, these are class acts by the organization and by Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta, and the meaning and purpose behind these deeds can’t go understated or ignored.
