Waco: H-E-B stores are helping to give back this holiday season

WACO, Texas (KWTX) As KWTX grows closer to the 30th year of Food For Families, the need for donations continues to grow as well.

"We have to get outside our box and tell them you are important to us," says the H-E-B Wooded Acres store leader Alex Thomson.

"Even if you aren't a customer you are a member of the Central Texas family," says Thomson when speaking about the store's $5 food bags that customers can purchase for Food For Families.

Once a customer purchases a $5 bag, that bag will be delivered to a pantry location.

Thomson says 15 H-E-B store locations across Central Texas have food bags for sale, and encourages everyone to do their part.

"What it is really great about this, is helping people," he said.
