GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)- A group of local Girl Scouts is hoping their donation will encourage others to give.

The Girl Scouts of Michigan Shore to Shore handed over more than 3,000 boxes of their cookies to Michigan Blood Tuesday. The cookies will be available for blood donors at mobile drives. The boxes were paid for by customers who recently bought Girl Scout cookies.

"This is a really great way for two great organizations to partner together because this is what our community is all about - organizations working together to help the community overall," said Gloria Lara with Girl Scouts Michigan Shore to Shore.

Local Girl Scout Troops also donated cookies to food pantries, children's hospitals and soldiers stationed overseas.
