Albany - Girl Scouts in South Georgia get a major boost from Winn-Dixie. Winn-Dixie presented a $3,000 check to pay for programs the girls participate in throughout the year.
"We always look to be a part of the community that we operate in and it's just a way to give back to a community that gives so much to us," said district manager Darryl Miller. Kristel Baranko said, "We are elated by far, we didn't expect it to be so big, but we take anything. We would have been just as excited over $25. So, we are always real ecstatic over getting community support."
More than 3,000 girls participate in the 34 county area served by the Girl Scouts of Southwest Georgia.
