O.C. Welch donates to Saint Benedict's Catholic Church

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

O.C. Welch donated $6,000 to Saint Benedict's Catholic Church to help restore the old school.

Welch said the old school is rich with history, and he wants to make sure that history is preserved.

"I would hate to know down the road that the school that Clarence Thomas went to was closed and demolished one day when it could be restored and be a part of our future history," said Welch.

"The church saw it as a challenge to restore this building, and they didn't have the money, but they took it on faith," said Rev. Romanus Ezeugwu.

The Catholic Extension will give the church $1 for every $2 they raise, therefore the church has $9,000 toward restoration efforts because of Welch's donation.
