Alfred Street Baptist Church Designates $1 Million to Jackson State University for Support during Water Crisis


THEE Realist
Alexandria, VA – Alfred Street Baptist Church’s (ASBC) Mission Division will donate up to $1 million to Jackson State University (JSU) to help defray costs related to the ongoing water crisis in Jackson, MS, which began in late August 2022.

When the city of Jackson water treatment facility experienced low water pressure and issued a boil water notice, the lack of water pressure on campus prompted the University to delay its student move-in date. Classes began virtually and staff worked remotely until normal water pressure resumed, making it safe to return to normal operation. The University incurred significant expenses to rent portable showers and restroom facilities during the height of the crisis.
