When Kaitlyn was 8, her dad drained her mom’s bank account and took everything she had—her mom told him to pack his bags and get out of the house. Kaitlyn got off the bus one day after school with her brother and saw her dad had moved out and all that was left was a note. Kaitlyn was a daddy's girl so when he left, she was devastated. She didn't understand why he left because she was so young. She just knew she got home from school one day and her dad was gone.

Seven girls, three leaders and multiple dads built five wooden bookcases and collected over 1,500 books for the children at Barium Springs. Special thanks go out to Home Depot in Huntersville for donating the materials, and Affordable Renovations from Huntersville for cutting the wood and showing the girls where to place the nails.
This project put the girls in a position to receive the Girl Scout Silver Award. Kerri Hughes, a member of Troop 576, shares, "going on the tour at Barium Springs and seeing how little these kids have, made all of us want to do something really special for them."
