As the threat of the novel coronavirus continues to make its way across Texas, the Lone Star State’s popular grocer H-E-B, continues to support and serve its local communities.
This time, H-E-B is committing $3 million to non-profits across the state, providing relief to those most vulnerable to COVID-19; seniors, children, and low-income families.
With schools closed, events cancelled, and work hours reduced, local non-profits will start to see a rise in demand for resources, and H-E-B is ready to help them, so they can continue to help Texas.
From the $3 million, $1.2 million will go towards H-E-B’s Hunger Relief Program to support 18 food banks throughout the state, which in turn will help provide more than 6 million meals to people in need. H-E-B will also deliver 15 truckloads of food and household supplies to the various food banks.
“H-E-B’s donation comes at a critical time as food banks across the state are stepping in to provide emergency food to the people and communities impacted by COVID-19,” said Celia Cole, Feeding Texas CEO in a press release. “We are grateful to H-E-B for its support. Together we will ensure no Texan goes hungry during this public health crisis.”
Additionally $500,000 will go towards financial assistance to traveling home feeding services like Meals on Wheels, and $300,000 will help assist the Texas Biomedical Research Institute in San Antonio for research to combat COVID-19.
H-E-B is proud to support local non-profits helping their communities, and because of this, they are also pledging $1 million to organizations who are providing resources to communities in need.
They are encouraging organizations who have been impacted by the increased needs due to the coronavirus to visit H-E-B My Community Investment to apply for extra funding.
“During these trying times, H-E-B is here for Texas,” said Winell Herron, H-E-B Group Vice President of Public Affairs, Diversity and Environmental Affairs said in the press release.
H-E-B is encouraging the community to keep calm and work together to combat and slow the spread of COVID-19 in Texas.
