One thing that's great about Texas residents is our willingness to jump in and help our neighbors when the going gets tough. So many people have been affected by floods all over the state and, not only are people stepping up to help on the local level but, some large Texas companies are also contributing.

Whataburger has donated $100,000 for flood relief to the American Red Cross in San Antonio and, HEB has also joined the help with a campaign to help victims, with a $100,000 donation of their own.

HEB is also making it easy for everyone else to help, by making donations of $1, $3 or $5 when you check out at the grocery chain. That's a great way to contribute because I don't know about you but, I shop there all the time and, I always give to whatever cause they're behind.
