Alabama Teen Challenge donates to Dallas County Sheriff’s Office

Alabama Teen Challenge donated gift bags to the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office on Monday.

Teen Challenge Program Director Joseph Smith and students in the program delivered gift bags to Dallas County Sheriff Mike Granthum at the Dallas County Courthouse. The bags contained Wal-mart gift cards, teen challenge with scripture John 3:16, a newsletter and Cross and switchblade book for the Granthum, Deputies and office workers.

Teen Challenge is a 12-month Christian discipleship program that helps men 18 years and older learn how overcome to alcohol and drug addiction. It takes a “faith-based approach” instead of a clinical treatment or mental health facility.

Smith said as the teenage boys go through the program, they get a better view of law enforcement.

“Giving back to the Dallas County Sheriff Office is important,” Smith said. “For so many years, we’ve been on the wrong side of law enforcement. Once we get a relationship with the Lord, we understand that the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office is doing their job and we’re thankful for them.

“Alabama Adult and Teen Challenge supports all our law enforcement and first responders.  We pray for them often and appreciate their daily sacrifices in order to keep us safe’.’

Granthum said he’s grateful for the donation.

“The teen challenge is an organization that gets the boys on the right track,” Granthum said. “With all of the stuff they’re dealing with and still take the time to give us a donation, we appreciate it.”
