“It’s a true blessing, I am grateful that Northside Baptist Church and the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office did this,” Travis said.

Kathy Smith said she got the information about Travis’ situation from Dallas County Sheriff Mike Granthum.

“When we found out from Sheriff Granthum, we jumped on this,” Kathy Smith said. “There’s nothing better than to help people.”
