SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – As the recovery process continues for the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Presbyterian Church in Springfield, multiple organizations are raising funds to help them rebuild.
The Council of Churches and the Pioneer Valley Project started the fundraisers, and between the two they’ve already raised more than $12,000.
A fire tore through the church in the early morning hours of Monday, December 28. The suspect, Dushko Vulchev, was arrested in connection to the fire and pleaded not guilty in court last week.
