Funds raised to repair statue


PEORIA, Ill. (WCIA) — The vandalized statue of Jesus at Serenity Memorial Park will be restored. Earlier this month, someone broke off the hands and bashed in the face.

A local councilwoman created a donation page which raised more than $4,000. To prevent it from happening again, a surveillance camera will be focused on the statue.
