13th Annual Helping Heroes Salutes Neighborhood First Responders More Than 700 Fire Stations Across Texas With a Day of Service

(San Antonio, TX) — H-E-B Partners (employees) from across Texas will serve their neighborhood fire stations on Friday, Sept. 8, during H-E-B’s company-wide Helping Heroes program. For 13 years, our Helping Heroes project honors brave Texas firefighters for their dedication and steadfast service. Partners will prepare meals for firefighters and provide other means of support to their local stations. This year, H-E-B will adopt 719 fire stations statewide.

“Every year, our Partners look forward to giving back to local firefighters who dedicate their lives to their communities,” said Winell Herron, H-E-B Group Vice President of Public Affairs, Diversity and Environmental Affairs. “During this time of crisis in Texas, we are especially thankful to our first responders who have shown remarkable courage and aided those affected by Hurricane Harvey. H-E-B’s Helping Heroes is an essential part of our continued commitment of giving back to the communities we serve.”

Helping Heroes provides a meaningful way for Partners to acknowledge and support local firefighters. This community service project recognizes September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance, paying tribute to the first responders who risked and lost their lives during the World Trade Center attack.
