Mustang Cat and the Houston Texans presented Brookwood Community with a donation for $60,000 as part of the Special Teams for Special Needs partnership on Thursday, May 14, 2015. The event included a tour of NRG Stadium which included the Brookwood citizens getting to practice with Texans players on the training field.
The Special Teams for Special Needs sponsorship benefits individuals struggling withmental and physical challenges. Each time the special teams unit of the Houston Texans scores a touchdown, field goal or an extra point, funds are set aside by Mustang Cat for a charitable donation to Brookwood.
Game day patrons are notified about Special Teams for Special Needs during the “What to Watch” segment via the video board at NRG Stadium at each Houston Texans home game.
During the last home game, a final tally of points scored and the funds to be donated will be displayed. After the season, Mustang Cat and the Houston Texans will present Brookwood leaders with a check for the total amount donated from the Special Teams for Special Needs partnership.
Brookwood, a nonprofit residential facility and vocational program for functionally disabled adults, is located in Brookshire, Texas, about 40 miles west of downtown Houston.
