OWENSBORO, Kentucky (WFIE) -- A good deed is often rewarded.
An Owensboro, Kentucky Girl Scout troop found that out on Tuesday night. A service club is giving the troop the money for a trip that the girls had donated to a family in need.
Gracie Hobbs has been in Girl Scouts for five years. She says being a scout is a great way to bond with her friends.
"We learn a lot of life skills. We learned first aid. We learned a lot of things," Gracie said.
Every year her troop sells Girl Scout cookies and uses the money to go on a trip. The night before this year's presale, something happened that changed their plans.
"One of our old friends Brianna, her dad, he died. It was just a tragedy for all of us and we just wanted to help her out," Gracie said.
