From Kathy Smith

By Staff | Jul 7, 2010

4 Paws For Ability is a nonprofit organization that provides service dogs to individuals with disabilities, so they can lead more productive and independent lives. If you would like to find out more about the organization before donating, visit www.4pawsforability.org. You can also directly mail your donation. Make check or money order in honor of Trinity Marie Martie.

My name is Kathy Smith and my family and I will be doing several fund raisers over the next few months for this organization. Our goal is $13,000. When the schedule of events are finalized I will post them.

All the proceeds will be donated in honor of Trinity Marie Martie. Trinity is the daughter of Trista Lemons and Chris Martie, granddaughter of Kathy and Jeff Smith, Tom and Jess Lemons, Tim and Erica Martie, and Toni and John Wright.

Trinity has a micro-duplication of the No. 1 chromosome, diagnosed with autism, and is non-verbal. We feel if she receives a service dog it will not only provide companionship but greatly improve her quality of life. Anyone interested helping in any way or who has any questions please call 304-398-4069.

Thank you,

Kathy Smith
