ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany area business owner got mad when he heard a thief stole money from the Girl Scouts, so he made a donation to cover the loss.

Once Upon a Grill chef and owner Dennis Mayer presents a check to Tiffany Stewart of the Girl Scouts. He asks other business owners to do the same. Monday, the Girls Scouts of Historic Georgia discovered that a thief had broken into their Pine Avenue store cash register and stolen one hundred dollars.

Once Upon A Grill chef and owner Dennis Mayer said "I felt that since we are cooks, we could step up and replace the money that was taken, and nobody is harmed."

Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia business manager Tiffany Stewart said  "We appreciate that so much. We're glad to be a part of Albany. This really shows the community bond that we have."

The money will be used to support programs such as sending girl scouts to summer camp.
