Nexterra, which is affiliated with the Duane Arnold Energy Center in Palo, made a $25,000 donation to the Red Cross Friday morning to be given directly to those affected by the flood.

The Red Cross delivered snacks and drinks from Charles City to Cedar Rapids and claims donations like this help them respond immediately to everything from house fires to flooding.

"The Red Cross cannot do what we do without the support of the American people, we are thrilled to be part of this generous Iowa and eastern Iowa community. It's been an absolute joy to see the community come together, work together for each other and really help in time of need," Kara Kelly, Red Cross Representative.

The Red Cross and Salvation Army are also independently gathering supplies together for flood victims across eastern Iowa.

The Red Cross says if people would like to give, they should consider a monetary donation in one of three ways; go to redcross.org, call 1-800-Red Cross, or text "red Cross" to 9-0-9-9-9.
