Albany Church uses toilets for good cause

Posted: Updated:

Watch out .  A toilet could end up in your yard.  But its all in good fun and for a good cause.

This house on Cameron Drive has a large sign that says the owners have been flushed.

Three painted toilets adorn the yard.

Families who get flushed are asked to help St. Patrick's Episcopal Church raise money to build homes and bathrooms for poor families in the Dominican Republic.

St. Patrick's Episcopal Church Reverend Jay Weldon said  "We decided that part of our work would be to build bathroom facilities for some of these families that may have a house, but not have any kind of bathroom. And as we talked about ways we could raise money for that, the idea of using a toilet as a fund raising tool."

If you would like to contribute to the St. Patrick's flush drive or suggest a yard to flush, call the church at 432-7964.

The church's mission team will return to Azua, Dominican Republic in January.
