Thieves Strike Salvation Army Thrift Store Truck

A month after thieves struck the Habitat for Humanity offices and stole catalytic converters from their delivery and construction vehicles, the same fate has struck the Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army announced Thursday that during the overnight hours from Wednesday into Thursday morning someone broke into their box truck and took two catalytic converters.

The truck is used for the everyday needs of the Army, including picking up items for their thrift store and also the handling of food donations.

The truck will be out of service for at least a week, putting financial strain on the organization which is already facing a possible 25% shortfall on their fundraising for the year.

Salvation Army officials are asking anyone with information about the theft to contact them at 417-862-5509 extension 103. If you wish to donate to help the Army offset the costs of replacement parts and repairs, you can donate through their website.
