Thief Steals Christmas Gifts For Families In Need

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A heartless act of theft has forced one Middle Tennessee non-profit organization to try and raise more gift donations before the Christmas Holiday.

One middle Tennessee non-profit is trying to recover from a heartless act of theft, right in the middle of the holiday season.

Over the weekend, someone broke into a car load of toys and electronics given to Cottage Cove Urban Ministries.

Those toys were ready to be given to families in need, but now they're gone and the group is scrambling to get more gifts ready in time for their Christmas store opening on Saturday.

Volunteers are doing the best they can to quickly make up for the stolen items so they'll have enough to support the families who have signed up.

"I think most people who would steal, and particularly things that would be for children, are definitely thinking of themselves and not thinking about others," said Brent MacDonald, the director of Cottage Cove Urban Ministries.

Cottage Cove said they're mainly looking for gifts for teens, like electronics and MP3 players.

Organizers said they are also in need of clothes for all ages, as well as car seats and baby diapers.
