INDEPENDENCE, Mo. -- Good Shepherd Hospice in Independence is collecting new and gently used hats, gloves and scarves for homeless veterans.

The donations will go to veterans in 13 surrounding counties. The donation drive runs through Dec. 17.

This is the first year for Good Shepherd’s drive. They said they hope to honor veterans by addressing a big need.

"It makes me feel honestly amazing. I love the fact that we are doing this," Laura Bate with Good Shepherd Hospice said. "A lot of the places that are getting the donations don’t even know that they’re getting them as of yet. I’m super excited to see how they’re going to react with it as well."
