A season meant for giving ends up being the season for doing just the opposite.
Early morning on Thursday Dec. 2, $1,000 worth of gifts was stolen from The Family Partnership located in North Minneapolis, according to Kare 11's Dave Berggren. All gifts were donated by citizens in the area and were intended to be holiday presents for low-income families.
"Obviously they were unwrapping some of them in order to see what was in there -to see if it was worth it," Annie Lewis from non-profit organization, said.
This is simply a balance between the gracious act of donation with the selfish act of theft, similar to the recent issue regarding the thieving of delivered packages from the post office, UPS, Fed-X, etc., that had been placed on a consumer's door-step.
