Washington state man saving $1million in pennies

A man in Mount Vernon, Washington is trying to raise $1 million - in pennies - to help needy families in his town.

Rand O'Donnell has already raised more than $4,000 for the "Mountain of Hope" fund.

Mr. O'Donnell recently used a wheelbarrow to deposit 56,600 pennies - $566 - at the North Coast Credit Union. The load weighed more than 300 pounds.
