Impact a Hero Weekend
May 15th-18th, 2013
Reliant Stadium, Houston
The Impact A Hero Weekend brings severely wounded heroes from post 9/11 combat and their families together with contributors and supporters for a weekend of events. The weekend provides our veterans a chance to bond with other wounded veterans. They are able to relax and emotionally recharge as they connect with people who are also healing and recovering. The Houston community also has a unique opportunity to personally thank our heroes for their service and sacrifice, providing valuable and tangible support for their healing journey. You can get involved by participating in the 5K Walk, Run and Wheel, the Hall of Fame Gala dinner or the Golf Challenge. For more information on each event, click the Impact A Hero logo.
Operation USO Houston Phone Bank
May 27th, 2013
This Memorial Day, USO Houston and KPRC Local 2 will team up to make sure our men and women serving overseas have what they need and their families back home are taken care of too. In Houston, the USO provides a touch of home to nearly 44,000 troops and military families who annually pass through our USO Centers at Bush Intercontinental and Hobby Airports, as well as offers morale-boosting programs to the 8,000 Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen and their families who are based in Greater Houston area. A phone bank at the Local 2 studios from 6am-6:30pm will aim to raise money for USO Houston and its great mission to support our troops “Until Every One Comes Home”.
