Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church donates to CCP

Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church has donated $100,000 to Community College of Philadelphia during its morning service on June 25, according to a news release.

The church at 2800 W. Cheltenham Ave. provided the donation to support CCP’s 50th Anniversary Scholars Program, which aims to help make college possible for eligible Philadelphia high school graduates.

“On behalf of the students, faculty and staff at the college, I want to thank Pastor Alyn E. Waller and the entire membership at Enon for extending the opportunity to Philadelphia high school graduates who show much promise, but need their community’s support to earn a college degree and become highly skilled workforce contributors,” CCP President Donald Generals said in a news release.

“A large gift such as this can change the lives of so many students, and foster more secure futures for their families and our city,” he added.

Waller has led the effort to raise money for the college’s anniversary fund. Enon’s first lady, Ellyn Jo Waller, is the chair-elect of the CCP Foundation.
