Local Girl Scouts give thanks to Border Patrol

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - A group of local Girl Scouts took time out of their daily duties to say thank you to those who protect our border.

During the government shutdown, Border Patrol agents worked day and night to protect the border from criminal activity.

On Thursday, Girl Scout Troop 9179 provided the agents with 300 bags full of goodies to show their appreciation for all that they do.

The bags included a bag of popcorn, candy bars, Lifesavers and Hershey’s Kisses.

Border Patrol says they are grateful for the gifts and will continue to protect our community.
