Iowa Family Leaves For Cedar Rapids With Your Donations

Some East Texans who are originally from Iowa have left on their journey to spread some sunshine to that flood ravaged area.

As it turns out, a U-Haul was indeed needed to help carry supplies to flood victims in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Donations poured in after 4 Cedar Rapids-born students made their appeal a few days ago on KLTV 7 News.

We thought you'd like to know - thanks to you, the family left this afternoon to drive to Denison to meet a truck from Cedar Rapids that will help them carry the supplies.
