H-E-B’s Spirit of Giving $10,000 Donation


For over one hundred years, H-E-B has been committed to and involved in various community initiatives like the H-E-B Food Bank Assistance Program, the annual Feast of Sharing holiday dinners, and the Spirit of H-E-B trailer that provides on-site relief in areas devastated by natural disasters. We are honored and proud to announce that H-E-B is donating $10,000 to the CYCLE Kids program benefitting the children in our area. We appreciate the efforts of Regina Garcia, H-E-B Public Affairs Sr. Manager, and Joe Steele in making this a reality. It is the goal of H-E-B to have a positive impact on our communities within the area of youth, children, education, and health. We are excited to have their support in what we believe is a life changing program for children.
