Money stolen

Letters: Pumpkin money stolen

Letter writer disappointed someone would steal food bank money

I’m not sure how to write a letter.  I’ll give you my story and maybe you can put it in this week’s Mirror.
 We were selling “pumpkins by donation” to the Sooke Food Bank.
We started with 100 pumpkins, and made $140 by donation selling 59 pumpkins.
We cash out on a daily basis.
We have 10 pumpkins left.

 

Yesterday  was a big day… 31 pumpkins.
 Went to cash out at 6 pm… and somebody had broken into the box.
There was 30 cents. To who ever stole the money, you are the biggest Grinch. You stole from families who work hard and are unable to supply enough food for themselves and their kids.

Hard working people who rely on the food bank. It’s cowards like you who have to steal from others.Those pumpkins were bought by Sooke Disposal and supplied by Galey’s farms.

I want to thank everybody for their generous donations, and if anybody saw anything suspicious, or knows who did this, please come forward.

Because it’s no doubt whoever did this, is also breaking into people’s homes and stealing anything they can get their hands on.

There is a camera set up but was unable to view the culprits.
