Christ Fellowship raises $602,000 for charity in two days

According to the Christian Post:

Members of a Fla. multi-campus church have raised over $600,000 over the span of 48 hours for the sake of charity.

Miami-Dade County-based Christ Fellowship Church raised the large sum during a two-day charity drive that began on Saturday, Dec. 15 and concluded Sunday, Dec. 16. Aimee Artiles, spokeswoman for Christ Fellowship, told The Christian Post that while this was not the first time the church had done a charity like this, the results were unprecedented.

“In October, we decided on $337,000 and to challenge our church to raise that amount to fund some opportunities with a nonprofit affiliated with our church, Caring for Miami, and to continue our work with the team we have in place in India,” said Artiles.

“This particular Christmas offering was not our first. However, it has been our biggest so far. We challenged our church to raise $337,000 in one weekend, and ended up almost doubling that goal and raising $602,000.”

Artiles also told CP about the places where the large sum of money would be going to.

“Caring for Miami currently serves the spiritual, physical and mental needs of the hurting and under-resourced in Miami,” said Artiles.
