H-E-B’s Help End Hunger Campaign to Benefit Caritas of Waco
Press release –
H-E-B and Caritas of Waco are partnering together to help feed the hungry in our community.
In the Waco community, approximately 30% of the population live below the poverty line. Many of these individuals do not know where they will get their next meal, and summer can be an especially challenging time with children not having access to school meal programs.
H-E-B’s Help End Hunger campaign supports food banks and food pantries throughout Texas, assisting people who struggle to avoid hunger. Locally, Caritas of Waco will benefit from funds raised by this effort. In turn, Caritas will provide needed food assistance to individuals and families in the Waco community.
At H-E-B stores in the Waco area, customers can help their neighbors by adding a $1, $3 or $5 donation to their final grocery bill. All proceeds from the donation campaign will benefit Caritas.
The campaign is running from May 8 through June 25 in all area H-E-B Stores, and the community is encouraged to support this important effort.
