(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) North American Savings Bank gave Second Harvest Community Food Bank a $50,000 donation Thursday morning. 

'We know that there are a lot of great organizations out there and that is a large amount of money so it's a big decision," said st. Joseph Second Harvest CEO Chad Higdon. "For them to support the work we are doing it really means a lot to us."

Second Harvest provides meals for the food insecure in northwest Missouri. This year alone, the non-profit has served 39,000 people. 

"They [NASB] said they wanted the money to be focused on kids and most of our programs already do that so this money will really go a long way for us," said Higdon.

NASB has been donating to Second Harvest since 2014. Over the past five years, NASB has donated $225,000 to the non-profit.

Moving into the weekend, we will be keeping an eye on the potential for flooding rain and strong thunderstorms. On Saturday, the rain might hold off until the afternoon but will be widespread late Saturday and into Sunday. This is when the heaviest rain should fall. Expect rainfall totals to be anywhere from 2-4 inches. This could bring area streams and rivers to flood stage so make sure you are watching out for that.
