Sources close to Davis’ camp tell BSO that last week, he gave away over 100 tickets to foster children that are in the WIN Family Services program in Baltimore. Tank. Davis grew up in the foster care system and hopes that he can be an inspiration to children in the same situation. Davis wants the children to come to the fight and see that someone who was once in their shoes can believe that there’s a way out snd become successful in life regardless of their circumstances. A few days ago, Davis also received the key to the city of Baltimore from Mayor Bernard “Jack” Young.
