Leaders of various faith communities came together Monday in the civil rights collection room of the Nashville Public Library downtown to commit to supporting their neighbors, no matter the neighbors' religious background.

The Faith and Culture Center of Nashville, a nonprofit supported primarily by the local Islamic community, presented a $22,500 check to the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga that will go to the families of victims who died in the shootings there on July 16.
