Turkeys Stolen from Church Food Pantry

saintanthonynewbedford.com

Neighbors and local organizations are pitching in after somebody stole Thanksgiving dinners from a local church.

According to the Standard Times, thieves broke into a storage unit behind Saint Anthony of Padua Church on Acushnet Avenue last Saturday, making off with 20 turkeys and 150 pounds of cheese. The stolen food has a value of $500.

Since the theft, the Portuguese Feast Committee has donated 30 complete turkey dinners, and funds have been privately raised to fix the storage unit’s door and build up the food stock.

The refrigerated storage unit is used to house food items for the church’s food pantry.

Police are investigating the incident.

Donations can be made by calling the church at 508-993-1691.
