Patriots of Texas Helps the Lives of Heroes

November 15, 2021

Military personnel, veterans, police officers, firefighters and EMTs — they keep us safe. But who keeps them safe when they fall on hard times? Who helps the people who help us? Patriots of Texas.

Founded in 2015, Patriots of Texas is proud to offer “boots on the ground” assistance to local veterans and first responders in need. The all-volunteer non-profit organization — driven by a passion for the United States and the men and women who serve — works to create solutions to common transitional and situational issues.

Patriots for Texas hosts numerous fundraisers including their most recent Music Fest and BBQ Cookoff. The money raised helps provide support for navigating veteran affairs, housing, transportation needs, building projects, medical needs and community investments.

Unlike many other non-profits, they don’t just work on large-scale projects. If a veteran, active-duty military or first responder needs something, volunteers work to make it happen.

Just last summer the organization heard about a disabled Marine who needed help getting his vehicles moved from California to Texas. Board member Karl Garrett drove 2,900 miles round trip with his truck and a borrowed trailer to help.

You can help them help others by donating food and supplies now through Dec. 17 at Woodforest. During our Giving Tree initiative, we are collecting donations for seven different charities including Patriots of Texas. Simply look at the list of requested items, purchase one or more and drop off your donation at The Giving Tree that has sprouted at The Palm Information Center, 251 Central Pine Street in Woodforest. Other charities you can help include Conroe Toys for Tots, Journey Home, Montgomery County Women’s Shelter, Operation Pets Alive, Meals on Wheels and Wrapped in Warmth. In addition, we’ll be donating $100 for every filled box.
