For several years Girl Scout Troop Leader Amy Kastner has been taking girl scouts to Mexico to help build houses for people in need, and those girls always seem to want to return. This year, a different older troop of 13 girls, primarily from Troop 391 (but augmented by other area troops as well), made the decision to go all in and do it also.

For the past year, they have been holding fundraisers, selling cookies, washing cars -- earning money to fully fund a spring break construction in Ciudad Acuña, Mexico. Early this year, the girls were given the option to upgrade the designed small home to include a kitchen and indoor bathroom, so they scurried to raise the additional funds and succeeded with cookie sales and donations.
