UVALDE, Texas — A little more than a month after the tragic mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde took the lives of 21 people, H-E-B and the Butt family announced that they are donating $10 million to build a new elementary campus in the community.

They will be working alongside other founding donors, including the Texas firms Huckabee and Joeris General Contractors, to bring this project to life.

“Our first store in Uvalde opened in 1959, and Uvalde people are our people,” said Charles Butt, H-E-B’s chairman. “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. Our children are this country’s future, and our schools should be a safe place where children can thrive and envision new possibilities.”

Robb Elementary, built in the 1960s, served more than 500 students in second through fourth grade. The school is now permanently closed and there are plans for its demolishment.

Anyone who would like to contribute to the new elementary campus can donate to the Uvalde CISD Moving Forward Foundation, a nonprofit established to build this new school as well as help the school district meet its financial needs.

The new campus will have state-of-the-art safety and security measures as well as new technology. The location, timeline and design of the project have not yet been determined. The school district will work closely with stakeholders and community to gather feedback and ideas for the new school.

“We thank our loyal H-E-B customers for their unwavering support of communities in times of need,” Butt said.

Earlier this month, H-E-B launched a donation campaign that would commit $500,000 to the victims and families affected by the tragedy.
