COCONUT CREEK, Fla. (AP) - A South Florida pastor is reaching new heights, literally, to help raise school supplies for underprivileged children.
Pastor T.J. McCormick, of Coastal Community Church, will live on a mechanical lift 50 feet in the air until 1,000 backpacks filled with school supplies are donated for children in Collier City.
McCormick's mission started Tuesday. He expects to live on the platform for three to six days.
