Hy-Vee, headquartered in West Des Moines, Iowa, has donated $100,000 to the victims’ families and others who were impacted by the tragedy at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, and is encouraging additional donations be made by those who want to show their support to the Uvalde community.
The funds were donated to the Spirit of Giving Fund, which is a 501 (c)3 organization established by Texas retailer H-E-B that provides financial support to help meet the immediate and ongoing needs of individuals and communities impacted by natural disasters and other tragedies.
Hy-Vee has pledged to continue providing and offering its support when disasters strike through monetary funds and use of its disaster recovery fleet, as it has during Iowa’s 2020 derecho, the 2021 Kentucky and Tennessee tornados and the recent Tops Friendly Markets incident in Buffalo, N.Y.
To donate to the Spirit of Giving Fund, donations of up to $250 can be made at www.heb.com/donate. Anyone wishing to donate more than $250 can mail checks directly to: Spirit of Giving Fund, 646 South Flores St., San Antonio, TX 78204.
