first_imgWho would steal from the homeless? That’s the question on the minds of those who helped build Cottondale’s Giving Pantry this week.The pantry, which was located at the intersection of JVC Road and Interstate Lane, held items like toiletries, food and clothes for those in need. It was installed less than a month ago, and was stolen the day after Thanksgiving.Pantry creator Tiffany Harris said she never thought someone would take the entire cabinet until she visited to restock it and found it missing.Since then, Harris placed another pantry at the Tuscaloosa Community Soup Bowl on Greensboro Avenue. That pantry is under surveillance.“If you stole it, you bit off your own hand because that is where we were putting free stuff,” Harris said. “But it will be replaced. We can’t punish everyone for one person’s bad deed.”If you have any information that could lead investigators to the person or people who stole the pantry, please contact your local law enforcement.Harris sadi she has another pantry she’s looking at placing in the Northport area. If you own a business or property and would consider having a pantry placed on your property, please contact her at [email protected] READ MOREHomeless Veterans Help Place Giving Pantry for Those in Need: Nov. 12, 2018Moundville Resident Restores Food Pantry After it was Stolen: Nov. 15, 2018last_img
