HEB Donates to Organizations Aiming to Fight Hunger

Posted: Updated:
ROBSTOWN (Kiii News) -

Organizations dedicated to feeding the hungry received a big helping hand Tuesday at the HEB in Robstown.

The money was raised during HEB's Share Your Christmas tear-pad campaign in December. Some of the organizations that received donations on Tuesday included local churches.

"We just received $1,000 for our food pantry to service our community in Robstown, Texas," said Audrey Lewis of Wesley Community Center.

"The Food Bank could not feed the number of hungry people that we do without the support of HEB," said Kathy Rios of the Food Bank of Corpus Christi. "It absolutely could not do it. It's a huge blessing."

Several other organizations from Beeville to Kingsville received similar donations.
