NPR 06/29/2022

The school district in Uvalde, TX, plans to demolish a school that was the scene of a mass shooter event that claimed the lives of 19 students and two teachers. H-E-B and members of the chain’s founding family will donate $10 million towards the construction of a new school. “As we continue to mourn tremendous loss, I join with my family and H-E-B in working to ensure the Uvalde community can move forward from this tragic event,” H-E-B Chairman Charles Butt said. “Our children are this country’s future, and our schools should be a safe place where children can thrive and envision new possibilities.”
