Members of a Crowley Church that had its roof collapse in June will be gathering for a fundraiser.

Saturday, The Love of Christ Baptist Church will be at the O'Reilly's Auto Parts on N. Parkerson Avenue for a hamburger and Po Boy sale.

The Church suffered severe damage following a sudden roof collapse in early June. Pastor Corwin Morgan said the roof collapsed because it wasn't built properly, and the collapse broke some pipes in the sprinkler system, flooding the cafeteria, a hallway and a small chapel.

The hamburger and Po Boy sale will happen from 10:00 to 3:00 p.m. Hamburgers are $6 and Po Boys are $7.

A GoFundMe account has been set up help the church in rebuilding. The church says that donations received will be earmarked specifically for Love of Christ Baptist Church.
