H-E-B Now Accepting Online Donations for Sutherland Springs Victims' Families


Some may find just about any reason to go to their favorite H-E-B, but if you find yourself unable to make it to the Texan grocery chain this week, don't fret. There's still a way for you to take part in the store's Helping Here campaign.

The Current reported on Monday that H-E-B was launching a campaign to benefit victims and families affected in the Sutherland Springs shooting on Sunday. It was easy as 1-2-3, or rather — $1, $3, $5, $50 or $100 that would be added to your bill and donated to the campaign.

One hundred percent of the donated funds will be given to the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs. Now, you can donate between $1 and $100 through H-E-B's website.

The chain is doing its part as well, already pledging $150,000 to benefit victims and their families. And that's on top of the local H-E-B locations in Floresville and La Vernia (both close to Sutherland Springs) donating food and supplies to community centers and local schools.

Everything is truly better with H-E-B.
