Columbian Ladies of South Texas Donate $5,000 to Red Cross
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
Our local chapter of the American Red Cross received a $5,000 donation from the Columbian Ladies of South Texas on Tuesday.
"We appreciate when there are civic groups of the community that really think about the American Red Cross," said Yvette Lara of the Red Cross. "We serve over 13 counties in our area, so any donation is greatly appreciated."
The Columbian Ladies of South Texas are actually the female version of the Knights of Columbus. The money that they donated to the Red Cross was raised through Bingo games. In fact, Tuesday's presentation was held at Corpus Christi Bingo, where the Ladies play.
