Elevation Baptist Church donates $5,000 to tornado relief fund

altElevation Baptist Church recently donated $5,000 to Saint Augustine's University’s Recovery and Restoration Fund. The fund is designed to help the school restore the campus to its historic beauty after a tornado tore through Raleigh on April 16, leaving devastating damage in its wake.

Elevation also gave $5,000 to Shaw University, which also suffered severe damage to its campus. The donations were presented during the culmination of the church’s youth conference, R.A.G.E. — “Reaching a Generation of Excellence.”

“The Elevation church family is committed to taking the love of Jesus Christ beyond the walls of our sanctuary and into the community,” said Dr. T.L. Carmichael Sr., pastor of Elevation, which has locations in Raleigh and Knightdale. “When we saw the damage the tornado caused to these two historic institutions, we felt compelled to do what we could to help both schools restore their campuses.”

“Saint Augustine's University appreciates the support from Elevation Baptist Church as one of our partners in the faith community,” said President Dianne Boardley Suber. “These relationships remain vital as the University continues to build its distinguished legacy.”
