H-E-B Donates to Sutherland Springs Families and Encourages Others to Join

By  | 

After the shooting that left 26 dead and more wounded in Sutherland Springs outside of San Antonio, H-E-B decided to reach out to the families of those who were affected by the senseless and terrible violence. KVUE writes that the company is donating $150,000, and they have opened up a campaign to raise more funds.

Austin 360 says that H-E-B customers can now take part in the campaign which is officially a part of H-E-B’s Helping Here initiative. In order to participate, Texans can head to the checkout and make a donation of either $1, $3, $5, $50 or $100. Austin 360 writes, “One hundred percent of the funds donated will be given to the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs.” All H-E-B locations in the Lone Star State should be accepting the donations.

But if you won’t be making a trip to the grocery store soon, you can also donate online to the campaign by clicking here. In the online form, people can give between $1 – $100 in various increments. H-E-B clarifies that the money will go to the victims and their families and a “qualifying charitable organization.”
