H-E-B reaches out to join in wildfire fight
EDN News Service, edi...@ennisdailynews.com
H-E-B and Central Market have activated an emergency response unit to assist the American Red Cross and Texas firefighters as the state combats wildfires in West and North Texas.
As the wildfires ravage over 1.4 million acres and displace hundreds of people from their homes, the company is supporting emergency first responders and the American Red Cross by donating pallets of Hill Country Fare bottled water and H-E-B snack items, as well as ready-meals and supplies such as sunscreen, goggles, lip balm and moisturizer. The company also hosted a fundraiser for the American Red Cross in Midland, Texas which raised more than $60,000 from H-E-B customers and employees.
