The non-profit organization My Girl Power donated a ping-pong table to Booth Fickett Friday.

The organization got the idea during a field trip last year when they took 80 middle school girls to the Capitol in Phoenix.

They spent most of their lunch break playing ping-pong at a park and organizers took note.

An organizer with My Girl Power explains why these types of donations are so important.

We really need to come together as a community ... Smile and put down their phones for a second, then I'm all for that.

The students on the field trip were all part of the "Girls in Real Life Situations", a support group for young women.
