As part of Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media, The Howard Hughes Corporation® made a donation to the Mariners Temple Baptist Church in recognition of their community service.

The church was organized in1795, and the present building was built in 1844 at 3 Henry Street.
