(DETROIT-WXYZ) - It was a Seven Action News Story that inspired a community.
Folks heard about 101 year-old Texana Hollis. The Detroit woman was evicted from her Carbondale Street home of 60-years after her son fell behind on tax payments.
The Call for Action Team called HUD, the agency that took possession of the home after the eviction and asked them to help her get her home back.
Local charities and volunteers then helped pay the thousands of dollars needed to buy the home back and get it in suitable condition.
This week Texana Hollis was able to return to her home for the first time since last year.
A group of girl scouts heard about what happened to Hollis and wanted to brighten her day. To hear from them and to see the house warming gift they put together, click on the video to your left.
