Saturday evening friends and community members enjoyed an evening of gospel from various groups and soloists at Englewood Baptist Church as they sang to raise funds to help with the repairing of the roof at the Truth for Youth building on Belmont and DeVilliers. “Our goal was to raise five thousand dollars for the roof,” said Rev. John Powell.
We had about fourteen groups including Southern Tones, Spiritual Persuaders, Men of God, True Redemption, Voices of Joy Rejoice, Heavenly Stars, Visionaries, Gospel Singingaires, English Brothers, Melvin Archer and the Sunshine Singers, Doris Hayes, Maxine Mathis and Deacon Michael Jackson.
“We also have other events in the making, that everyone will be able to come out and enjoy,” said Rev. Powell.
Truth for Youth has been instrumental in sponsoring programs for the community children for back to school projects, Easter events, Christmas presents, food and in some instances, monetary support.
The organization is a nonprofit entity and mainly gets its support from the community. I you would like to support an organization that really cares about our community children, please contact Re. John Powell at 850-393-0332. All donations are tax deducible.
