Thieves make off with church's Thanksgiving donations
SAN LEANDRO, Calif. (KGO) -- A church in San Leandro is digging deep after thieves stole the food for their Thanksgiving meal.
Members of Faith Fellowship Church in San Leandro had already donated enough money to feed 60-100 needy families this Thanksgiving, but last week, someone cut a lock and chain on the building and made off with a majority of the food.
Some church members say the break-in was a little disheartening.
"The good thing is we announced it to our congregation that it has been stolen and they've really bounced back to support the families and started donating even more than before," Michael Montara said. "It's a good thing to see everyone rally together."
Church leaders say they're not looking for anyone to be arrested or brought to justice. They just want to feed those in need this thanksgiving.
