MERIDIAN-- Here is a happy ending to a story we brought you last week.

Five-year old Gavin has had over 30 surgeries and needs a service dog.

Last weekend the community came out to an event at the Moxie Java on Locust Grove to raise money for Gavin to get matched with a service dog.

The baristas even donated their tips.

Owner Sami Morledge tells us a Marine donated $1,000 for Gavin.

Over $7,000 was raised, enough for this little boy to get matched with a dog.

The family will have their first service dog consultation in the next two weeks.
