Awesome Opportunity to help the Food Pantry in Acton, MA

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

In a disturbing act, over the holiday season, the Acton Food Pantry was robbed of several thousands of dollars of food that had been contributed to the organization.

The thief was apprehended last week after it was revealed that the man had made several "withdrawals" from the pantry's inventory.  As reported by the local news feed Wicked Local, a security camera recorded the same man repeatedly entering the pantry and stealing the food.  

Yes, we are in challenging times with many going without.  That's why the food pantries are there...to help those in need.  Apparently, this particular man was taking much more than one household would need, and as reported, the pantry's executive director believes this man was acting out of opportunity rather than need. 

A sad state of affairs...most definitely.

If you reside in MA, and more specifically, anywhere near Acton, they are having a donation drive to replenish their donations.  Information is below.

Carol, it is a terrible day indeed, when even a food bank gets robbed.  Can you believe we had a Vet's wheelchair stolen here in the Denver area; not once but twice!  Trying times indeed.
