Locals are stepping up and donating, in an effort to bring justice to those who recently vandalized the St. Peter and Paul’s Cemetery.
An initial $1,000 reward was offered by Caywood’s Funeral Home to help lead to the arrest.
Now neighbors like a West Elmira woman and her son are each donating $100 to the cause.
Cemetery Board President Marty Chalk says he’s received dozens of calls from people wanting to donate to a reward fund.
More than 70 gravestones were vandalized over the weekend at the cemetery in Southport.
