As Jewish Community Centers (JCC) across America receive more bomb threats, a group of Evangelical Christians in Alabama plan to raise security money to help support their local JCC.

The Levite JCC in Birmingham has suffered four bomb threats since the beginning of the year and been evacuated each time, disrupting its preschool and exercise facilities. More than half of the children enrolled in the preschool program are not Jewish, AL.com reported this week.

The security upgrades required at the JCC building will cost as much as $1 million, according to reports.

Among the ministries that have pledged to raise the money are the Scott Dawson Evangelistic Association, The Center for Executive Leadership, Young Business Leaders, Lifework Leadership, JH Ranch, Alliance Ministries and the National Christian Foundation of Alabama. Several major churches have pledged contributions of $5,000 to $10,000, AL,com reported.
