Community council sets up fund to help Universal Christian Ministries after weekend burglary
The St. Anthony Park Community Council has set up a GoFundMe page to help a neighborhood church replace a number of musical instruments, sound equipment and thousands of dollars in cash that were stolen from the church during a burglary last weekend.
Police say the burglary happened at Universal Christian Ministries, 997 Raymond Ave., between 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 30, and 7 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 31.
Cash that the church had planned to donate to a mission in Sierra Leone was taken from a locked collection box along with three keyboards, two guitars, speakers, microphones and a mixer board. The church has estimated that the value of the instruments and cash amounted to $20,000.
