H-E-B announced plans Monday to donate $150,000 to the support along with a statewide checkstand donation campaign to help families affected by the shooting in Sutherland Springs.

The checkstand campaign allows customers to make donations at the register for $1, $3, $5, $50 or $100. An online donation campaign will be available on H-E-B's website.

H-E-B is working with the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs to ensure all donations directly benefit the victims and their families.

“H-E-B is committed to providing assistance during times of crisis. Our hearts reach out to all at this tragic, painful time,” said Winell Herron, H-E-B Group Vice President of Public Affairs, Diversity and Environmental Affairs. “It is our hope that H-E-B’s donations, along with our loyal customers’ support, will help our neighbors in Sutherland Springs. This is a difficult situation for many as they grieve and face unimaginable loss.”

Stores in Floresville and La Vernia are helping funnel food and supplies to community support centers and local schools.
