Nonprofit Robbed Ahead of Service Event was originally published on City Desk on May. 01, 2009, at 10:34 am
Greater D.C. Cares has its annual Servathon event planned for this weekend, but the task may be a little harder this year.
This e-mail went out yesterday to the group’s supporters:
Thieves broke into our Community Tool Chest early Monday morning and stole several thousand dollars worth of tools and supplies. Stolen items included brand-new power tools and other items that are vital to the success of Servathon.
We are shocked and saddened by this crime, but committed to moving forward to make Servathon 2009 a success. Despite having bought many of these tools only weeks ago, GDCC is being forced to replace these items in a matter of days. Given the tight budget we are already on for this event and the limited amount of time we have to acquire these tools, we need help from our supporters to fund these last-minute, essential purchases.
Since today is the first day of the event, no one at Greater D.C. Cares could be immediately reached for more details. But you can help by donating here.
