Local Eagle Scout pays it forward with loving kiosk

An El Paso Eagle Scout is using his skills to help people with Down syndrome.

Marc Pacheco created a pop-up kiosk Hugs and Mugs and gave it to Gigi's Playhouse, a community center for people who have family members with Down syndrome.

Hugs and Mugs is a program that helps adults with Down syndrome learn skills that'll help them get jobs.

The Scout created the project to help him achieve his Eagle rank.

"It makes me feel proud of myself that I'm able to help out in some way. Just however small or however large I could make a difference always can go along to someone else," said Pacheco.

Pacheco said he's been in the Scouts since he was 8 years old. He plans to go to college and become an engineer.
