Jim Ned High School student  Dakota Chaloupka earned his Eagle Scout ranking and did a good deed all at the same time by building a prayer garden at Houses for Healing on North Hickory Street.

Chaloupka got some help from friends and his dad, Daniel, in completing the impressive garden. Houses for Healing, started by Brian Massey, provides a free place for patients and their families to stay while undergoing medical treatment in Abilene. Each tiny house in the Houses for Healing addition is sponsored by a church. For more information or to help out, go to www.

Dakota got connected with Houses for Healing through his mother, who works for Keller Williams. The real estate agency adopted Houses for Healing for its RED Day. RED, which stands for Renew, Energize and Donate, is Keller Williams’s annual day of service.

Massey submitted the following photos from the construction.
