(ST. JOSPEH, Mo.)- One St. Joseph restaurant opened up their hearts to help those affected by the recent floods.

Back on April 6, Chick-Fil-A hosted a fundraiser to support the United Way of Greater St. Joseph's Flood Relief Fund.

They elected to donate 50-percent of all their food sales that day.

On Thursday, Chick-Fil-A presented United Way with a check for over $7,900.

For everyone involved, it was a rewarding team effort to help so many families get back on their feet.

"We just want to send a huge thank you to the community of St. Joseph and anyone who was traveling through on that day who came to visit us, get a great meal and make a huge effort and huge impact on those impacted by the flood," said St. Joseph Chick-Fil-A Owner Ruthie Seitz. 

"It might be for someone we're helping with gas costs because they are driving hundreds of extra miles in a week because their regular routes to work and school have been disruptive and will be for several months or help somebody put a deposit down on an apartment because they are not going to be able to get back into their homes," said United Way of Greater St. Joseph President Kylee Strough. 

If you were affected by the recent floods and you need assistance, the United Way is still here with many resources available.

You can call (816) 364-2381 for more information.

Temperatures are very mild outside right now with most areas in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Today will be another warm and windy day with temperatures climbing into the lower 70s. Today we will have mostly sunny skies with a few clouds building in during the evening hours. Outdoor burning should be avoided today as low humidity and gusty winds continue. Winds will stay breezy over the next few days with wind gusts around 20-30 mph. A more active pattern of weather will settle in for most of this week with our first chance of light rain overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. A better chance for more moderate to heavy rain with possibly a few thunderstorms will move into the area Wednesday night into Thursday with a cold front. That front will stall south of our area late in the week, providing several more chances for rain throughout the rest of the week into the weekend. Temperatures will be a bit cooler after the cold front rolls through with highs back in the 50s.
