ANDERSON COUNTY, S.C. – A string of violent crimes in Anderson County, has led an Upstate pastor to a plan he hopes will stop the violence. However, he’s pleading for your help to make it happen.
The pastor, along with others, said it’s going to take more people to help make the difference.
“We need to take our communities back and the only way we’re going to do that is that you got to go to the community and come together,” Tackling the Streets Founder and Director Rev. Emmanuel Donaldson said.
Reverend Donaldson is the founder of ‘Tackling the Streets’ which started in 2011.After a number of violent crimes and the sudden death of his father, he shifted in a new direction.
“We turned to doing the ‘Stop the Violence’ Program when a string of violence just got started here and just got on a rapid pace,” Donaldson said.
“Kids are getting kidnapped left and right and they’re finding babies. Anything can happen,” said Wesley Burgess, an Anderson County resident. .....
