Oh no..What an awful shame that happened..It's bad enough to steal anything from anyone..anywhere...But even lower to take from a charity..

Thanks Terry..

Yes, Dee, it takes a real lowlife to steal from a charity. Hopefully, it will cause a surge in donations that will more than make up for the theft.

Scums, but if you're a thief I don't believe that they think to much about from whom the'yre stealing. Sad story.

Perhaps a bunch of us should go on the WAR PATH and do something about scum like these.
Of course it's possible that the current influx of homes being invaded and robbed, banks being robbed, and the fact that the crime rate has increased would cease if the jobless rate weren't so high. Anytime the economy is so bad, crime does increase. We need jobs, jobs, jobs.

I agree, anytime the economy is rough the crime rate increases, but is still no excuse to steal. Those theives tend to only steal from others who are having it equally as bad or maybe even worse than they are. To steal at all is just so wrong but this does sink to a lower low when one steals from a charity before the holidays.

This is so very sad, unlike other foundations with Insurance and money to back them, this charity will probably have no way to rebuild itself or community projects!There is a new law about to come out, a Hate crime law, and this will be used by native americans for acts against them,yakoke

What a total crime and shame this has happened. Please know that all of us who know of your struggles are saying prayers for the return of the things stolen, and the thieves punished. Just keep up with the good works you are doing and don't lose heart.
