While you're out doing your holiday shopping, consider picking up an extra pair of socks for a veteran in need.

The American Red Cross will be hosting a sundry drive to benefit service men and women in the Cameron and Fort Leavenworth Veterans Homes.

Angie Springs, Executive Director of the American Red Cross of Northwest Missouri, said this is a simple way for the community to support local veterans during the holidays.

“One of the main areas the American Red Cross focuses on is service to our armed forces. We are congressionally chartered to not only provide disaster relief during times of disaster, but also to serve as a conduit between service members and their families, both in times of deployment and after their time with the military,” Springs said.

Toiletries, gift cards and clothing will be accepted through December 15. Donations can be dropped off between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday at the Manager's Office at East Hills Shopping Center; The American Red Cross, 401 N. 12th Street St. Joseph, MO; and at two of the Farmers State Bank locations in St. Joseph at 2211 N. Belt Hwy, and in Cameron at 124 East 3rd Street.

Skies have started to cloud up late today after we saw sunshine for the first half of the day. Clouds will start to break apart again this afternoon with temperatures warming into the lower 50s. The majority of today will be dry, but there could be a few areas of light drizzle later this evening mainly to the south of the St. Joseph area. Temperatures will continue to warm on Saturday making a run for 60 under mostly sunny skies. A few clouds will move into the area Saturday evening as a cold front moves through. That cold front could bring us a few areas of light rain once again, but most areas will see less than a tenth of an inch of rain.. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Sunday because of the cold front, but will quickly start to warm into the 50s by the beginning of next week.
