This is how the Rockets came in clutch for Memorial Hermann Hospital workers

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The Houston Rockets organization spent Easter Sunday saying "Thank you" to the city's health care workers.

The Post Oak Hotel and La Griglia, owned by billionaire Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta, prepared and donated meals to Memorial Hermann Hospital locations the Greater Heights and Katy.

"We recognize the true heroes that are right in the midst of this battle on the front lines, and as an organization, we wanted to do something to show our gratitude, to say thank you," said Sarah Joseph, Rockets Community Relations Director.



Many of Houston's professional athletes and teams are stepping in to provide food and other necessities for workers.

Over the last few weeks, JJ Watt, Deshaun Watson, and several Houston Astros, along with the ball club's foundation, have all helped in some capacity.
