The Psalm 46 fund, launched in early April to respond to immediate needs of African American and Latino families caused by job losses and other hardships caused by the coronavirus pandemic, has raised more than $290,000, organizers announced in an interview on Real Talk with Henry Sanders, Madison365’s video show and podcast.
Rev. Marcus Allen, senior pastor at Mt. Zion Baptist Church and president of the African American Council of Churches (AACC), joined Lighthouse Church pastor Marcio Sierra as guests on the show. “This fund has been very beneficial for us and those in our community,” Allen said. “And (it’s) just been amazing to see how so many people and churches have been willing to give.”
