CINCINNATI -- A South Fairmount church that's been helping people in need for nearly a century now needs the community's help.
Immanuel United Church of Christ has been on Queen City Avenue since 1925, according to Pastor Walter McMurray Jr. It was once home to a congregation of 1,500 people. More than 90 years later, it has dwindled to 25.
McMurray said the congregation may be small, but it's devoted.
"They opened this church as a mission to serve people in this community, and we have carried on the tradition ever since," he said.
The congregation has seen a lot of people who are experiencing homelessness come into South Fairmount, according to McMurray.
"We have had four of them that overdosed," he said.
