South Bend Church wants you to throw your money down the drain


A Catholic School in South Bend wants their toilets to overflow, but overflow with money.  At a festival Saturday Our Lady of Hungary kicked off a new fundraising campaign called Pennies for Potties.  They're trying to raise 30 thousand dollars to upgrade their bathrooms.  The school said their current restrooms just aren't cutting it now that they have a lot more students due to the voucher program.  "We're in need, in desperate need of a new potty system for them.  Our toilets are like maybe 40-50 years old," said Rosemary Barnes with Our Lady of Hungary Church.

The School doesn't expect to raise all the money right away.  Saturday was just the beginning of their fundraising efforts.  For more information on how you can help visit the church's website.
