Buchheit Donates Supplies for Texas Relief Effort




October 4th, 2017 (Biehle, Missouri)- Buchheit Enterprises, Inc., a retail store, agricultural division, and trucking company held a supplies drive for hurricane relief efforts. During the month of September, each retail location had a Texas relief donation box displayed in the front of the store. In October, these items were collected and sorted at the Central States Distribution Center in Biehle, Missouri. Along with these contributions, Buchheit Enterprises, Inc. donated additional pallets of bottled water for the storm relief efforts. On October 4th, several pallets of water and miscellaneous cleaning supplies were packed into a trailer and sent to Beaumont, Texas. Beaumont was among the state’s cities that was hit hardest by Hurricane Harvey. Once the supplies have reached Beaumont, Catholic Charities will distribute the supplies to those affected by the storms.

Buchheit would like to thank everyone who participated in our supplies drive. It was wonderful seeing all the donations that each store collected. We are so pleased to see members of our community coming together to help those in need. These donations will help those displaced by the hurricane and the volunteers working to restore the city.

Buchheit Retail has been serving the community since 1934. Currently Buchheit Retail operates 8 stores – Herculaneum, House Springs, Perryville and Jackson in Missouri and Jacksonville, Greenville, Centralia and Sparta in Illinois. Buchheit features merchandise for the home, garden, and farm that is geared toward exploring the possibilities of a simpler life.
