Stay Connected Ministries Helps Hospital Patients

In a move to help coronavirus victims, Stay Connected Life Ministries, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity and local organizations recently partnered with Best Buy to donate 200 cell phone chargers to Centinela Hospital Medical Center and Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital. The Rev. Douglas E. Nelson, pastor of True Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles and president of Stay Connected Life Ministries, spearheaded the initiative to help patients stay in contact with family, friends and loved ones while in quarantine. Nelson said he experienced being disconnected first hand when an 81-year-old church member was quarantined after contracting the virus.
