Troop Tuesday: Ambassadors help a family build a new beginning

While most high schoolers are spending their summer at the movies or at the mall, two Ambassadors from Troop 1156 are spending theirs at a construction site to help build a new home for a family in need.

Now retired and her home suffering from significant aging and structural issues, Maria Medina applied to Habitat for Humanity in hopes of a new home for her growing family and grandchildren.

After learning about Maria’s story, Anna and Schuyler teamed up with St. Andrew the Apostle Catholic Community and Habitat for Humanity to help work on the project. The girls volunteered 10 hours each painting the walls and doors and cleaning up general construction materials.

"It was fun helping build a new home with my friends. I like knowing that we were improving the lives of a family," says Anna of Troop 1156.

Combining their talents, interests and willingness to serve others, Anna and Schuyler from Troop 1156 left their mark in the community. Well done, ladies!
