KHOU helpingJanuary 29, 2016 – In 2015, thousands of residents throughout Houston were impacted by flooding. Mr. Boyd, a Vietnam Veteran living in northeast Houston, was one of those residents. High water damaged the exterior and interior his home, with the most damage in his 6-year old granddaughter’s room.

Mr. Boyd attempted to get help through FEMA, but with minimal success. With nowhere else to turn, Mr. Boyd called Rebuilding Together Houston.

Since Mr. Boyd served his country during Vietnam, Rebuilding Together Houston was able to make Critical Systems Repairs to his home with the funding from the Texas Veterans Commission - Housting4TexasHeroes program. In collaboration with KHOU 11, one of the Super Impact 17 campaign sponsors, the home repairs were finished on a clear day in January. KHOU 11 employees and 15 players from the Houston’s Chapter of the NFL Players Association volunteered their day to help out. Mr. Boyd worked side-by-side with the volunteers all day and mentioned a few times that he was excited for his granddaughter to see the house – after all, Mae-Mae had picked out the house’s new colors.
