GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Homeless men and women are now enjoying some tasty treats thanks to a smart and motivated 6-year-old local girl scout.

Emery Alexander wanted to give lots of Girl Scout cookies to the homeless. But the point of the cookie drive is for the Girl Scouts to raise money.

So she came up with a way to get her friends and family to buy the cookies so she could then give them away.

Emery's mom went on Facebook and asked everyone they knew to help.
