Why Steal from a Charity?
Driving through a parking lot in southeast Edmonton, I noticed this lady in her purple puffy jacket, rummaging through items, left for donation, at a Big Brothers & Big Sisters drop box. I stopped and watched her for a while, as she opened bags and pulled things out to look at them. She was throwing things on the ground that she didn’t want.
I pulled around closer to her, thinking she would stop but she kept going. Eventually I opened my window and asked why she was taking items left from a charity. She turned, looked at me and walked away.
This is not the first time I’ve seen people taking items from these dropoff areas. I’ve noticed people in fancy cars, dressed well, pull out step stools to reach in donation boxes all around the city.
If you need items this bad, I’m sure there are services that can help, please don’t steal from charities.
