HEB accepting cash register donations for Sutherland Springs’ victims, families
When something good or bad happens in Texas, H-E-B tends to be there.
This weekend, the San Antonio-based grocery store hosted a tent at the Texas Book Festival, but after the church shooting in Sutherland Springs outside San Antonio on Sunday, where 26 people were killed, the grocery announced that it would be accepting donations at the cash register for victims and their families.
According to the San Antonio Current, it’s part of H-E-B’s Helping Here campaign, which raises money through $1, $3, $5, $50 or $100 donations paid for at the check-out. One hundred percent of the funds donated will be given to the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, the store announced today, and all H-E-Bs in Texas are accepting donations.
