The three Sharyland high schools have an extra $2,500 to share between them after H-E-B awarded the district a check Jan. 21, following a food-sampling showcase. The grocery store on the corner of Shary Road and Expressway 83 hosted a fundraiser for Sharyland Independent School District that required H-E-B customer participation.
When visitors entered the store, they were given a food-sampling passport and had to travel through the grocery to visit six food stations. For every passport that was stamped at each of the food stations, H-E-B donated $10 to Sharyland ISD, with a cap of $2,500. The district was able to get 501 passports stamped and meet the maximum donation amount.
The cheerleaders, dance team and drumline performed, while the Academy read to children and mascots posed for photos around the store. From end to end, the H-E-B was decked out in Sharyland red and white.
