The HPROA has received information that some retired officers do not have access to purchasing surgical masks, nor do other retirees have the resources to hand-make them.  Due to COVID concerns, the City of Houston implemented a surgical mask program that specifically targets senior citizens and other at-risk vulnerable people.  Many members of the HPROA are in this high-risk category and accordingly, more subject to the COVID virus.
HPROA members George Buenik and Jim Hudson were instrumental in getting the HPROA’s mask request submitted to the City, and ultimately approved. [More]
