Cedar Rapids sends $50,000 to Czech Republic

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Cedar Rapids has raised $50,000 dollars for the Czech Republic.

The money is going to relief funds for a flood damaged library in the Czech Republic.

Several Cedar Rapids organizations teamed up to fund raise this October in a campaign called "CR to CR."

Cedar Rapids was returning the favor after the ambassador of the Czech Republic helped Cedar Rapids in 2008.

The Czech Republic donated more than $500,000 to flood relief here.
