"Then I was hurt that there are a lot of people, because the kettle was stolen, may not get the help they need", Jones said.

The incident occurred December 5 around 1 p.m.at the Acme on Mantua Avenue in Woodbury.

The Salvation Army Angel Tree has been discussed a lot this holiday season, and on Friday, the objective of the tree came to fruition.

In previous years the packing and distribution of the hampers took place at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre but that changed this year after the Salvation Army did not apply for the grant it had received in other years.

Authorities do not know how much money was taken.

"I've been doing this now for roughly 15 years", Higgins said.

And they need about 500 frozen turkeys that will be given out to families in need. "They just can't afford to eat".

"Any sensory items, anything with a mirror to see their face for the first time", she said. "Many of the people we help do have jobs".

Although the program usually runs from a Monday to a Friday, this year there is a break because of the way the holidays fall on the calendar.
