Quad City And Clinton Hy-Vee Donates To Red Cross

Updated:

Today the Quad City and Clinton Hy-Vee stores gave the Red Cross a check for nearly five thousand dollars.
 
The donation is a result of the store's canister collections. After tornadoes devastated areas of Oklahoma, the local Hy-Vee stores asked the Red Cross what they could do to help.

"What I love about something like this is it's literally change," said Kasey Kelly, Regional Communications Manager for the Red Cross. "You know you hear, change can make a difference and you hear it and this is a great chance for it to register. You can see what a large amount can come of people dropping quarters, dollars, and dimes into a jar."

The canisters were out in the stores for about a month.
     
The money will go to the disaster relief fund, helping those impacted by storms throughout the U.S.
