ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany business leader makes a donation to help a south Albany church recover from a devastating burglary. The third break-in at the church this month.

B. J. Fletcher donated a window air conditioning unit to Trinity Temple on West Mercer Avenue. The church's air conditioners were just part of the $15,000 worth of items stolen this week.

Fletcher urges others to stand up to criminals by helping this congregation.  

"If you've got anything else sitting on your back porch give it to Mr. Burch... get this church opened back up so we can show the people that are doing this, you're not going to shut this community down," said Fletcher.  

The congregation went ahead with Wednesday night services, saying criminals will not stop them from doing the Lord's work.
