FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - A local organization has raised thousands of dollars to help out a non-profit.

Florida Girls Giving Back presented a check for $10,000 to Covenant House in Fort Lauderdale, Wednesday.

Covenant House is a nonprofit organization that provides housing and supportive services to youth facing homelessness.

Florida Girls Giving Back, which is a group of Broward girls in grades 8 through 12, said they were able to raise the money by creating a special viewing event during the Air & Sea Show.

This is not the first time the organization has raised money for a good cause. In 2018, they raised enough money to sponsor a home for Habitat for Humanity of Broward.

Since 2016, the organization has funded over $90,000 to Arc Broward, Covenant House, Habitat for Humanity Broward, and Marjory Stoneman Douglas support.
