H-E-B is doing its part to honor our nation’s heroes this September 11th through a check stand donation campaign directly benefitting Operation Finally Home http://www.operationfinallyhome.org/ , which provides homes for wounded and disabled veterans and their families. The check stand donation campaign is one of many initiatives as part of H-E-B’s Operation Appreciation, a companywide campaign to honor the brave men and women who defend our nation’s freedom as members of the US Armed Forces and their families.
H-E-B customers statewide will have the opportunity to donate $1, $3, or $5 at all H-E-B locations statewide beginning Wednesday, September 11 through Sunday, November 17. H-E-B helped to build two homes in San Antonio in 2013 through Operation Finally Home, and plans to build five more in 2014 throughout the regions of Texas the company serves.
Operation Finally Home is a Texas-based nonprofit that builds homes for wounded and disabled veterans, and the widows of the fallen. When service members return home from duty with physical disabilities, emotional disabilities or financial loss and joblessness, they often have nowhere to turn. Operation Finally Home repays the heroic service of these brave men and women by fulfilling the American dream of home ownership.
“By partnering with Operation Finally Home, H-E-B will be able to give disabled veterans and their families the greatest gift of all, a home to call their own,” said Winell Herron, H-E-B Group Vice President of Public Affairs, Diversity and Environmental Affairs. “Our H-E-B Operation Appreciation initiative is a longstanding commitment to serve these brave service members and their families who have sacrificed so much for our country.”
Helping and honoring our nation’s heroes is a key part of H-E-B’s Helping Here. philosophy, which promises to stand by and support our communities.
