Watermill Express is a proud supporter of the Feast of Sharing program, which brings together hundreds of H-E-B partners and community members each year to serve a nutritious holiday meal to thousands of individuals in communities across Texas and Mexico.
“Once again, Watermill Express stepped up and helped make the H-E-B Feast of Sharing a huge success,” said Bailey Lowery, H-E-B Employee. “The hard work of everyone at Watermill Express is greatly appreciated by everyone involved.”
It is estimated approximately 40,000 people filled community centers across Texas to enjoy the free meals.
