HEB Kicks Off Helping Heroes Program

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Local HEB employees showed up at Fire Station Eight on Kostoryz to serve up both breakfast and lunch for the crews there on Friday.

It has become an annual event for HEB employees, and it is all part of their Helping Heroes program. They say it is just a small way to say thank you for all the heroic and brave work done by firefighters.

"Well, it's very appreciated," said Captain Michael Tressider of the Corpus Christ Fire Department. "Our guys are very busy, and it's nice to have someone come in and provide a warm meal that we didn't have to do all the preparation for. It was very nice."

Community service events like this will be happening around the state, as HEBs statewide will be participating in events leading up to Sept. 11.
