Butte Central Schools fundraise to get historic church new roof
BUTTE, Mont. -

The oldest catholic church in Butte-Silver Bow is getting a new roof.

A Butte Central Teacher's Assistant started a fundraiser to raise enough money to help the St. Lawrence O' Toole Church.

With help from students, staff, and the community, it only took five months for the school to raise $25,000.

That money pays for materials for the roof because the V. Taylor Enterprises offered free labor for the project.

"It shows people in Butte how much we treasure our historic landmarks and how important it is to maintain them before they start falling down," said Butte Central Teacher's Assistant Pam Olson.

Olson said Butte Central and St. Lawrence are still accepting donations to keep up with the church's maintenance.
