H-E-B Chairman and CEO Charles Butt, PENNSYLVANIA 1959, Offers Hurricane Relief to Publix Super Markets Inc.

Butt and his employees help reopen Publix stores following Hurricane Irma.

Like most Sigs who've given of themselves during Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, supermarket magnate and Significant Sig Charles Butt, Pennsylvania 1959, found a way to help those who needed it the most. Butt, who is chairman and CEO of the Texas-based H-E-B chain, is sending seven trucks of water, two filled with ice and another filled with cleaning supplies to the Lakeland, Florida, headquarters of Publix Super Markets Inc. this week, a company spokesperson confirmed through a press release.

One-hundred of Butt's employees accompanied the convoy to Florida, which was expected to arrive on Sept. 15. Butt was returning the favor from last month when Publix sent supplies to H-E-B after Hurricane Harvey hit Texas.

Butt also relieved several of his employees of their duties in Houston and sent them to Florida to help reopen Publix stores, throw out spoiled food and restock produce.

n Hurricane Harvey hit east Texas last month, H-E-B responded by helping those in the area. It has made $3 million in donations to relief organization and served roughly 50,000 meals from its mobile kitchens, according to a company press release.

Butt, who has a net worth of $10.7 billion according to Forbes, also donated $5 million of his own money to the Hurricane Harvey relief fund started by Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.

"Throughout this disaster, I have been humbled by the state's unprecedented generosity and heroism," Butt said in a statement. "I want to commend and support the extraordinary relief efforts of J.J. Watt who has taken the lead, not as a world?class NFL player or celebrity, but as an individual who saw the need to help his fellow Texans and immediately took action."

USA TODAY Sports reported that the donation is the largest made to Watt's online charity thus far.
