15-year-old Gabriella Gillen has a heart for community service. The girl scout made dozens of overnight bags for kids entering the foster care system.

She made the bags for abused and neglected kids which included pajamas, toothpaste, a book and other things that would comfort them as they entered foster care.

The Tampa Bay Lightning donated bags and A Kid's Place helped distribute them.

By the end of the school year, she had made 50 bedtime bags.
