TEXAS – The Lone Star State’s top grocery retailer has taken numerous steps to help stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), and now it has implemented Texas Proud Pay and a special delivery option for seniors.

  • Hourly employees to recieve extra $2/hour
  • Senior Support line now available

All hourly store, manufacturing, warehouse and transportation employees will receive an extra $2/hour Texas Proud Pay effective March 16 through April 12.

H-E-B has also extended medical leave to all employees and in the event that an employee is diagnosed with coronavirus, he or she will receive pay. The grocery chain is hiring.

The retailer has also partnered with Favor Delivery to launch a simple, low-cost solution that gives seniors access to their very own personal shopper by phone, allowing them to get essential food and supplies delivered to them, while remaining in the comfort and safety of their home.

Beginning on March 20, seniors across Texas, age 60 and older, will be able to place orders with Favor using a curated list of products available from H-E-B.

The Senior Support phone line, with volunteers from both companies, will work to accept and process orders over the phone from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., seven days a week.

To access the Senior Support Line, call 1-833-397-0080. Seniors can also place their orders on Favor’s website, or by downloading the Favor app and searching for H-E-B.

All delivery and service fees are waived for the first 30 days of the program. Further helping Texans, orders will include a $10 tip, which goes entirely to the Favor runner, who will personally shop and deliver items.
