INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — If you're looking for another reason to donate blood during this critical about some free Girl Scout cookies?

Starting next week, donors will get to enjoy some Girl Scout cookies when they donate to help save a life.

That's thanks to 4,700 packages of cookies the Girl Scouts of Central Indiana delivered to American Red Cross.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created a serious shortage in blood donations.
