TULSA, OK -- Marquette students are collecting coins for the Saint Francis of Assisi tuition assistance fund. The fund helps children attend Catholic school who might not otherwise be able.
The students set a goal of $1,500 with MidFirst Bank matching an additional $1,500.
On Wednesday, the children deposited their coin collection into MidFirst's mobile coin counter. The final tally: more than $5,000!
