This event was hosted by Greater Houston Retailers Charitable Foundation. This is their first Peace Officers Holiday Appreciation Luncheon.
The Greater Houston Retailers Cooperative Association (GHRA) and its Members wanted a way to give back to the communities within which we live and work, and from that desire the Greater Houston Retailers Charitable Foundation (GHRCF) was created.
GHRCF commits itself to providing assistance to programs that contribute to the safety of Houston area Peace Officers and Firefighters and is devoted to providing financial and non-financial support to the families of Houston Area Peace Officers and Firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty. To this date, GHRCF has donated over $100,000.00 to families that have lost loved ones in the line of duty.
