PLANO (WBAP/KLIF News) — When Ivanka Trump learned that Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano was raising money to minister to migrants at the Texas – Mexico border she donated $50,000 to the effort.
Pastor Jack Graham said the donation was received after he sent a tweet reading, “We @Prestonwood are currently working to provide solutions to care for children during this terrible immigration crisis. Our Espanol ministry let by Gilberto Corredera is stepping up to the challenge to express the love of Jesus. We are broken-hearted and determined to act.”
NBCDFW reports Pastor Graham said the donation was not expected but he wasn’t surprised by her generosity. He added, “In the midst of all this political division… God’s people can show love and compassion and help, which is what we want to do,”
