Providing aid in times of crisis, H-E-B’s Emergency Response Team has Disaster Relief Units (DRUs) and an H-E-B Mobile Kitchen stationed in Rockport with a second team in Houston. With so many neighborhoods devastated by the storm, our DRUs and Mobile Kitchen will continue to distribute much needed food, supplies and water to those in need.
In Houston, our team will setup support trailers and a Mobile Kitchen at the George R. Brown Convention Center, 1001 Avenida de las Americas. We also have truckloads of water dispatched to the staging area.
We will continue to operate a Mobile Kitchen, Mobile Pharmacy and Mobile Business Center at the H-E-B in Rockport. So far, our teams have already handed out more than 10,000 hot meals and truckloads of water and ice to people in Victoria, Rockport and Aransas Pass.
The following are links to video footage, capturing our relief efforts:
Starting on Wednesday, Aug. 30, people will be able to make monetary donations when using our H-E-B Curbside service and on HEB.com. All monies accepted from the Tear Pad campaign, which we launched in-store this weekend, will benefit the American Red Cross, The Salvation Army and Feeding Texas and their disaster relief efforts.
