Media mogul Tyler Perry bought a new van for a Stockbridge church after it had one stolen before Sunday’s service.
The theft left Lighthouse Community Church with just one van.
Perry, most known for his Madea character, replaced the van after watching a Channel 2 Action News report about the theft.
“My phone rang and he said, ‘This is Tyler Perry ... I saw the Channel 2 newscast and my heart was broken. So, I bought you a new van,’” church administrator Cindy Smith said.
The 15-seat van was used to take children to various church events.
“For a few minutes I didn’t feel like I could put my feet down on the ground,” Smith told Channel 2. “He is a man with a lot of means and a lot of influence, and he didn’t have to do it.”
