On Friday afternoon, the Houston Rockets partnered with the Houston Federal Credit Union to provide families with an abundance of complimentary items.
The Houston Rockets have had quite an eventful offseason, which saw them replace longtime general manager Daryl Morey with Rafael Stone and former Coach of the Year Mike D’Antoni with Stephen Silas. The Rockets have also been in the news of late for trade chatter surrounding Russell Westbrook, as it’s been reported that he’s requested a trade, although he’s somewhat disputed the reports.
With the Westbrook trade talk dominating all Rockets-related news, other things have gotten lost in the shuffle. Case in point, the Rockets’ charity efforts.
On Friday afternoon, the Rockets partnered with the Houston Federal Credit Union to provide families with packets that included a plethora of items, such as an activity book, crayons, financial literacy worksheets, snacks, a water bottle, and a Houston Rockets mask. The families were greeted by several of the Clutch City dancers, along with former Houston Rockets forward Maurice Taylor, who spent four seasons with the franchise, posting averages of 10.5 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.3 assists.
Rockets provide assistance during food distribution
The families were in line to pick up food donations at the Mission Bend Boys and Girls Club through a drive-thru distribution and walked out with much more than they expected.
The Rockets will also be partnering with the Houston Federal Credit Union for another food distribution on Tuesday, November 17th at Harvard Boys and Girls Club, and will be providing the same packages.
The Rockets have done their part to assist in the community during the coronavirus pandemic, which has ravished both the nation and the Houston community, and has yielded a second wave that’s produced an even higher number of positive cases.
Kudos to the Houston Rockets for continuing to be a beacon of light in the community!
