Residents of Pomona in Manvel will join Hillwood Communities in banding together to honor health care workers during National Hospital Week.

Hillwood, which is distributing 5,000 white ribbons to homeowners and their families across nine Texas communities, has scheduled a united show of support at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 14. Residents are encouraged to stand outside their homes, clapping and cheering for everyone on the front lines in healthcare during the coronavirus pandemic.

"This is a simple, yet heartfelt way we can show our appreciation for those on the front lines, especially during these challenging times," Hillwood Communities President Fred Balda said in an announcement. "With the inability of people to personally thank our healthcare heroes, including those who live in our own communities, this is a small way to demonstrate our gratitude."

Dallas-based Hillwood is developing Pomona in the Houston area and eight other communities in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Austin markets. Each community will have a custom banner at its entrance honoring the healthcare workers.

Residents are encouraged to share photos and videos of front-lawn gatherings on social media with hashtags #MyHospital and #HospitalWeek.
