AUSTIN, Texas — So the slogan goes: "No Store Does More Than My H-E-B." Texans love H-E-B.
Another seemingly apparent trend: Austinites are showing a deep appreciation and love for the new soccer team in town, Austin FC.
Austin FC has engaged in a vast community outreach platform, oftentimes in collaboration with none other than Texas' favorite grocer. H-E-B has already been named one of many local sponsors of the team, including the namesake of “H-E-B Plaza,” an on-site fan-zone activation area in the exterior of the northeast entrance of Austin FC’s 20,500-seat soccer stadium at McKalla Place. H-E-B and Austin FC also teamed up last November to surprise Central Texans and buy their groceries.
The organizations recently announced the community kickback campaign. H-E-B and Austin FC have pledged to donate $100 to the Central Texas Food Bank for every goal scored by an Austin FC player.
They will keep a running tally throughout the season and update each week on how much the donations grow.
