Corpus Christi Metro Ministries and the Corpus Christi Hispanic Chamber of Commerce received a $10,000 donation from Sam's Club Thursday. The funds were used to buy a new van.

"We'll use it for food and furniture pickup and delivery, and for all matter of things that go on over at Corpus Christi Metro Ministries," Metro Ministries CEO Patty Clark said.

Clark said it will help them serve the more than 7,000 people they assist throughout the year.
