H-E-B is doing its part to honor our nation’s heroes with a check stand donation campaign directly benefitting Operation Finally Home. The program 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 company-wide campaign to honor the brave men and women who defend our nation’s freedom as members of the U.S. 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 through Sunday, Nov. 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.
