Benjamin Watson helping raise funds for St. Landry Parish churches

New Orleans- Former New Orleans Saints’ tight end, Benjamin Watson, is promoting fundraising efforts for the three St. Landry Parish churches that were burned down last month.

St. Mary Baptist Church in Port Barre, Greater Union Baptist Church in Opelousas and Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in OpelousasĀ  were all burned in a 10-day span from March 26 to April 4.

Watson recently shared a social media post, showing that a GoFundMe account has been set up by the Seventh District Baptist Association.

Their initial goal was to raise $1.8 million, so far they have raised just over $53,000.
