TN: Churches Help Rebuild Burned Mosque


Churches in Maury County are opening their doors and wallets to come to the aid of a mosque that burned over the weekend.

Channel 4's news partners at the Columbia Daily Herald report that one church has already raised $10,000 to help rebuild the Islamic Center of Columbia.

At least three others have offered the center space to conduct prayers.

Residents can also donate money to the Islamic Center of Columbia Building Fund at Community First Bank and Trust.

Three men face federal charges in connection with setting fire to the mosque.

Authorities said Eric Ian Baker, Michael Corey Golden and Jonathan Edwards Stone, all of Columbia, had planned for a week to burn down the Islamic Center of Columbia, which was located in a storefront.
