The Mt. Tabor Little League suffered a major theft last Friday night. As KATU news reported, someone stole thousands of dollars of candy and snacks from the league’s concession stand. Adding to the sting of the theft was the fact that the team had their fundraising goods taken as well. As league president Sherilynn Mobley explains in the KATU news story, the league had hoped that to put fundraising proceeds toward replacing ten teams of mold-damaged uniforms.
Although no one knows exactly what happened, because there was no sign of forced entry, Mobley speculates that someone crept into the league’s concession stand during Friday’s practice. All in all, ten cases of water, ten cases of Gatorade, candy, and five cases of fundraiser pepperoni were taken.
After hearing of the theft, Rick’s Custom Fencing and Decking donated $1500 to the league. Several other local businesses also made generous donations to cover the league’s losses. Rick’s Custom Fencing is happy to help out in this way, and hopes that the kids of the Mt. Tabor Little League will soon have new uniforms.
