H-E-B on Thursday donated $50,000 to the American Red Cross for the victims of last week’s tornadoes that devastated areas of North Texas, according to a news release.
The grocery chain also said it will begin accepting donations from customers, and is providing gift cards and meals to churches, first responders and families impacted by the storms.
H-E-B customers can add a donation in increments of $1, $3 or $5 to their total grocery bills, the release stated. Customers may elect to donate multiple increments; no purchase is necessary to make a donation.
In both Cleburne and Granbury, H-E-B stores are preparing home-cleaning kits for affected families. H-E-B also donated 20 pallets of food to the Tarrant County Area Food Bank, the release stated.
