(KWES) - The Basin Cares, a partnership between NewsWest 9, Telemundo 20, and La Ley Radio, H-E-B and the West Texas Food Bank to help relief efforts to benefit Hurricane Harvey victims. NewsWest 9 will host live broadcasts this week from H-E-B, 3325 W Wadley Ave. in Midland asking for donations to benefit those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Donate Cash Donations In-Store:

H-E-B has launched a statewide tear pad campaign, giving customers an opportunity to support victims through donations of $1, $3, or $5, which can be added to their total grocery bill.

All monies accepted will benefit the American Red Cross for Texas Flood and Hurricane Relief, The Salvation Army and Feeding Texas.
