HELP OUR HEROES

Township Help Our Heroes Moves to Interfaith

Help Our Heroes Social 1024x512In early April 2020, The Woodlands Township Board of Directors launched the Help Our Heroes campaign to collect crucial Personal Protection Equipment (PPEs) supplies for local first responders and hospitals.

Thanks to the generous donations of residents, the Township has collected a variety of supplies that number into the thousands for local heroes.

Now, as The Woodlands and Montgomery County plan to re-open, the successful program and its counterpart, Adopt a Healthcare Worker, are transitioning to Interfaith of The Woodlands, where collections will continue.
