We strive to continue a tradition of helping communities flourish through our Giving Back programs.

Brookshire Grocery Company supports hundreds of organizations in the communities we serve through our corporate donations program. In-kind and monetary donations are spread across our market areas to support more than 100 communities in Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana.
Our company celebrates what is truly important to our communities through events like the FRESH 15k, Spirit of Christmas Food Drive and our annual Brookshire’s Benefit Golf Tournament. We also have specific programs designed to protect and care for our environment.
Heroes Flight for Veterans
In 2010, Brookshire Grocery Co. embarked on a mission to escort a group of World War II veterans to Washington D.C. to visit the World War II Memorial (completed in 2004), along with several other points of interest. “Brookshire’s World War II Heroes Flight” first took place on May 11 & 12, 2010, with 38 veterans and 19 others, mostly Brookshire’s employees, to assist them. The endeavor was fully funded and coordinated by Brookshire’s, at no cost to the veterans. To date, over 400 veterans have made the trip. Download an application. Fill out an online application.
