Region 8 scouts ditch Christmas gifts to give back to community

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A local scout troop decided instead of exchanging Christmas gifts they would give back to Jonesboro's furry community. 

Eagle Scouts Troop 210 decided to take it upon themselves to collect food, toys, and leashes for Jonesboro Animal Control.

Scout leader Jodie Seaborn said he noticed animal control lacked supplies while browsing on their Facebook page.

I've noticed that animal control doesn't get as many donations as many other shelters do," Seaborn said. "So, we needed to help them out.

Troop 210 will not stop there. Seaborn said they will continue to find ways to help their furry friends in need.
