RICHMOND, Va. -- Richmond’s Faith Community Baptist Church and its pastor, Dr. Patricia Gould-Champ recently received the Beloved Community Award in Faith and Education.

The award was bestowed as part of Virginia Union University’s 43rd annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Leaders Celebration.

The church is currently working to assist students in the Fairfield, Whitcomb, Creighton Court and other neighborhoods on Richmond's East End.

Their “Stay Connected, Stay on Point” program is helping dozens of local students with academic support and technology during the pandemic so that they don’t fall behind. The program also assists with meals and snacks during the day.

In the latest edition of CBS 6 Gives, Cheryl Miller and CBS 6 are pleased to help support those efforts with a $250 donation.

If you would like to find out more about the program or offer assistance, contact Faith Community Baptist Church here.

CBS 6 Gives is assisted by Virginia Credit Union in helping spread joy and offering a helping hand in our community throughout the year.
