HOW TO HELP: Sutherland Springs Church shooting

According to the San Antonio Current, it’s part of H-E-B’s Helping Here campaign, which raises money through $1, $3, $5, $50 or $100 donations paid for at the check-out. One hundred percent of the funds donated will be given to the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, the store announced today, and all H-E-Bs in Texas are accepting donations.
