What the Rockets are doing to give back this holiday season

New, comment

The Rockets are in a giving mood.

Many Rockets are ending up on the nice list this holiday season with their philanthropic efforts to give back to the Houston community.

Throughout December, the Rockets are hosting charity events to help the Houston community’s youth experience an amazing Christmas and holiday season.

Earlier this month, Austin Rivers gave several children shopping sprees at the Target in Sawyer Heights Village.

Isaiah Hartenstein and Gary Clark joined Rivers at the event and enjoyed a meal with the mentors from Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Russell Westbrook hosted a Christmas party for 300 Houston children at Emancipation Park earlier this month. It was one of the first of Russell Westbrook’s events in Houston with the Russell Westbrook Why Not? Foundation.

Clint Capela delivered gifts to children staying at Houston’s Casa de Emperanza, a neighborhood where at-risk children stay to give access to services.

Despite being out with a knee injury, Gerald Green is doing what he can to help Houston.

Green and fellow Houstonian Danuel House Jr. hosted a Target shopping spree for 50 South Houston Elementary kids and the Houston Housing Authority.

James Harden also hosted his annual Target shopping spree last week.

The Rockets have built a strong sense of community in Houston and it is nice to see the team give Houstonians smiles on their faces on and off the court.
