On Monday, October 3, we will recognize businesses that have pledged one percent of pre-tax earnings—such as volunteer time, products, services, and financial support—toward community impact efforts. We encouraged businesses to self-nominate or nominate a company that goes above and beyond to give back to our community. We are pleased to announce this year's award finalists!

Bobby Jenkins Philanthropic Award

Central Texans are passionate about H-E-B and we are thankful H-E-B is passionate about giving back to Central Texas. We are excited to recognize H-E-B for all that they do for Austin and Texas. H-E-B has a commitment to helping every community they serve. Most recently, they have been recognized for their donations and work in Uvalde, but they have also been there for Central Texas during our times of need. They believe in Texans helping Texans and we appreciate that support during times of crisis and the work they do day in and day out to fight hunger, support our nation’s veterans, help new and innovative brands, and so much more. Join us in recognizing H-E-B for all the work they do to help Texas and Austin be a better place to live.
