INDIANAPOLIS -- A Zionsville church donated thousands of dollars to Indy’s Ten Point Coalition Monday to help the organization continue their crime prevention efforts.

Rev. Charles Harrison of the Ten Point Coalition was presented a $32,500 check by the pastor of Zionsville United Methodist Church. The money was raised by the church members through a series of offerings.

"We're just very excited to help support any ministry of peace in this community and this world," said pastor Glenn Howell. “To be a part of Ten Point is exciting to be able to go into neighborhoods and prevent violence from happening it is the will of God."

 

Harrison said the organization will use the money to expand its crime prevention initiatives into a new neighborhood. Ten Point currently serves the Crown Hill, Butler Tarkington and the United Northwest Area neighborhoods.
