Non-profit's copper piping stolen; fundraiser to be held

Sept. 8, 2011 (CHICAGO)

Betty Price, better known as "Mother Price", is the founder of Feed, Clothe, and Help the Needy, a not-for-profit organization in Englewood.

Price returned home from a church trip this week to discover all the copper piping had been stolen from outside her charity's building. With the electricity out, a majority of the donated food spoiled.

"I'm tired. Can you imagine five, or six, or seven times they done did that? And each and every time money has to come out of somewhere to get it fixed. Impossible, too much on one lady. I can't do it," she told ABC7.

Price says she is hosting a fundraiser dinner this weekend to help raise funds to cover the cost of moving the wiring inside the building.
