DENISON, TX--A local non-profit organization is giving back to the community by helping those in need improve their homes. It's called “Project Crosswalk.”

On Tuesday, volunteers from Trinity Baptist Church in Sherman volunteered with the Project Crosswalk program at a home on Fannin Street in Denison. The volunteers were there to make improvements to them home, which is in bad condition.

This home belongs to Dorothy Smith. Smith is 67 years old and was recently laid off from her job. She says the city has issued her several citations to bring her home up to code, but she hasn't been able to because she doesn't have enough money. The home is in such bad condition that she has been living in a detached garage and that’s why Project Crosswalk stepped in to help.

Project Crosswalk representatives say it will take about $1,200 worth of materials to fix up Smith's home.

    what a wonderful story, there are several groups that would like to lend a helping hand, just dont have the funds to make it happen, so instead of the city issuing citations, allow groups to utilize the cities resources, not so much the money, in order to help with situations like this. my church has a group called KROPP, which is kids respecting other peoples property, that has willing teenage boys and girls that would help clean, fix, or haul anything for anyone, WESTERN BEAUTY CME

    Good news, after all the bad in the news this is refreshing. Good people helping their neighbors. Wasn't that a teaching of Jesus? Christians showing Jesus to a lost world. Thank you Ch. 12 for showing Christian Americans displaying the teachings of Jesus. Great job Project Crosswalk.
