ALBANY - St. Patrick's Episcopal Church in  Albany is placing toilets around town as a fundraising effort to build houses, bathrooms and churches in Azua, Dominican Republic.

The January 2010 Haiti earthquake damaged Azua.

St. Patrick's has dopted a five-year plan to support the Episcopal Church of the Reconciliation in Azua and that church's work in the community.

Clergy and parishioners from St.  Patrick's made their first trip in October 2010 and are planning a second trip in January 2012.

Children at St Patrick's painted the toilets and they are accompanied by a large sign that reads, "You've been flushed!"

St. Patrick's hopes that those who find toilets in their yard will donate to the work in the Dominican Republic.

Anyone interested in donating or volunteering should contact the Rev. Jay Weldon at St. Patrick's.
