Girl Scouts donate to the Food Bank of NEA

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Girl Scouts stopped by the Food Bank of Northeast Arkansas on Wednesday to drop off 7,000 boxes of cookies.

Girl Scout Haley Coffman met up with the President and CEO of Girl Scouts Diamonds Dawn Prasfika to participate in 'Girl Scouts Give Back.'

Prasifka said the girls get a lot out of being a part of this.

"These girls get the courage to come to a place they've haven't been. They get the confidence by speaking to people they haven't spoken to and they get the character by learning what it means to give back of themselves," Prasifka said. "They are making the world a better place."

A total of 28,000 boxes are being given out by the Girl Scout council.
