Providing aid in times of need is at the heart of H-E-B’s Helping Here philosophy, which promises to uplift and support communities during times of crisis. To help Texas’ neighbors recover from the severe damage caused by Hurricane Ida, H-E-B has mobilized to provide monetary support and truckloads of water and cleaning supplies to food banks in Louisiana.
Inspired by the company’s Spirit of Giving, H-E-B will support with Hurricane Ida relief efforts in the following ways:
- Donate two truckloads of bottled water to the Second Harvest Food Bank, which offers support to counties across southern Louisiana.
- Gift $100,000 to the Second Harvest Food Bank and $100,000 to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank to aid in their recovery and outreach efforts.
- Provide additional truckloads of cleaning supplies to area food banks.
- Provide a truckload of bottled water and a truckload of cleaning supplies to Louisiana-based Rouses Markets.
- Donate to the Cajun Navy two truckloads of water and truckloads of additional supplies such as shelf-stable food, cleaning supplies, and pet food.
H-E-B will continue to stay close with these nonprofit partners and other disaster relief organizations to assess future needs throughout the recovery.
Fellow Texans looking for ways to support our neighbors are encouraged to give to disaster relief organizations, Feeding Louisiana or directly to food banks such as Second Harvest Food Bank and the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. To best help these organizations respond to some of the hardest hit areas in the state, monetary donations are encouraged and the most efficient way to support. To donate to Feeding Louisiana or one of the food banks in its network, visit feedinglouisiana.org.
