LIFT Ministries donated items to the male and female inmates of the Dallas County Jail.

LIFT ministries founder LaTanglia Williams donated soap, toothbrushes and deodorant to the inmates.

Williams handed the gift bags to DCSO Officer Tracy Sanders, who works at the Dallas County Jail. She said it’s always important to assist the inmates.

“It’s not a want. It’s a need,”: Williams said. “I felt compelled to help stand in that gap and help deliver some hope to a facility of men and women that need compassion.  Some inmates do not have any outside support, therefore they cannot afford to purchase much needed hygiene items off the commissary.  I want to bless them with some necessities.”

Williams, daughter of Dallas County Commissioner Curtis Williams, also credits SELMA AIR and Blackbelt Wellness Center for assisting.

Sanders said it’s always great to see local organizations like LIFT Ministries assist the Dallas County inmates. “It’s a blessing to have LIFT Ministries and SELMA AIR help us with the inmates,” Sanders said. “We’re grateful to have them donate to the county jail.

Dallas County Sheriff Mike Granthum said several months ago that he appreciates Williams and LIFT Ministries for always thinking about the inmates.
