Raffle Helps Church Recover

Vandalized church gets support from community.
COLVER, CAMBRIA COUNTY - A local church continues to pick up the pieces after it was broken into and vandalized earlier this week. Copper piping, and donation baskets were taken from the Holy Ascension Orthodox Church in Colver, Cambria County. On Sunday the community rallied around the church making an annual basket raffle a little extra special to try and help them get back on their feet.
"The community members have really stepped up and not just with the raffle but in helping cleaning up and getting our church up and running again," Benefit Organizer Diane Sauger says.
Sauger says a number of individuals stepped up to fix the church including replacing the door and fixing the plumbing. They were hoping to raise at least one thousand dollars to help pay off their insurance deductible.
