JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The Downtown Jonesboro Association celebrated their last Pack Pride weekend honoring veterans during their Downtown Gives Back event.

Several participating businesses including Godsey’s Grill, Gearhead Outfitters, and Adara Boutique donated 10% of their funds they made from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. to the Beck Pride Center at Arkansas State University.

That particular organization is a philanthropic organization dedicated to providing first-class education programs and services to combat wounded veterans.

“So much to be thankful for,” said Wilder. “I am eternally grateful, and downtown and the community is eternally grateful for our freedom and those who support that.”
