On Wednesday, H-E-B presented Driscoll Children’s Hospital with a transformational gift of $1 million for the major expansion project currently underway at Driscoll Children’s Hospital.
Rob Hall, Group Vice President/General Manager – Gulf Coast Region, and representatives from H-E-B presented hospital representatives with their gift in front of the H-E-B Kids’ Market at Driscoll Children’s Hospital.
“Driscoll is out of room,” said Steve Woerner, President and CEO of the Driscoll Children’s Health System. “This project is by far the largest one undertaken at Driscoll in 20 years. H-E-B’s transformational gift helps Driscoll expand to meet the growing needs of children. We are grateful for H-E-B’s generous support for more than 30 years!”
The H-E-B Kids’ Market is invaluable evidence of the significant partnership between H-E-B and Driscoll Children’s Hospital. H-E-B has given generously for numerous critical projects, including the play area in the Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center and the most recent renovation of the Emergency Room.
“H-E-B has long recognized the incredible community resource that the hospital is in South Texas. We are proud to stand by Driscoll Children’s Hospital and share our resources to assist in making sure that the children of South Texas have access to the highest quality of healthcare in their time of need,” said Hall.
“We are grateful for the tremendous support of H-E-B. Driscoll was born out of the philanthropy of Clara Driscoll. H-E-B’s generous support extends the legacy of Clara Driscoll. Driscoll is honored to reflect H‑E‑B’s Spirit of Giving in South Texas. H-E-B and Driscoll – together – part of our community! Thank you, H-E-B! Our loyal donors, constant supporters and incredible volunteers have made our mission and work possible by giving their time and resources to directly impact the precious children we serve.” (see link below – H-E-B Spirit of Giving)
