H-E-B donates $100,000 to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, begins in-store donation drive
SAN ANTONIO - H-E-B planned to launch a massive donation drive as relief efforts got under way across Texas on Sunday morning, beginning with its own $100,000 donation.
Beginning sometime on Sunday, shoppers at most stores across Texas will see tear pads at the register to make $1, $3 or $5 donations when they check out.
All proceeds the American Red Cross for Texas Flood and Hurricane Relief, The Salvation Army and Feeding Texas.
“H-E-B has received numerous requests from customers about how they can help support victims and communities affected by Hurricane Harvey,” said Winell Herron, H-E-B Group vice president of public affairs and diversity. “H-E-B’s tear pad campaign offers a convenient and efficient way for our customers to make a difference in the lives of thousands of families in need.”
H-E-B is also making plans to send its Mobile Kitchens and Disaster Relief Units to the Texas Gulf Coast to help residents affected by Hurricane Harvey.
