This group of youths from Mt. Zion Church in Macclenny raised $5000 on May 3 for Heather Nipper, a Baker County girl scheduled for stem cell treatment in Thailand for a sight disorder that blinded her since birth.
The group was locked up for 12 hours from 8 pm and spent the night with hourly prayer devotion and games, raising the money via pledges.
