MANCHESTER- The is an outpouring of community support after thousands of dollars’ worth of tools were stolen from a Habitat for Humanity work site on Hosley Street in Manchester.
Habitat workers walked in Monday to find someone had broken in a back window, going so far as to use a pink substance to cover up their fingerprints and screw all of the doors shut so their scheme wouldn’t be interrupted.
Liz Rakich, President of Habitat for Humanity in Greater Manchester discovered the break-in herself.
“Immediately called the police, it wasn’t until I went in there and I found out it was the tools,” Rakich said.
About $5,000 in tools were taken in the middle of the night.
Neighbors are upset over the crim but relieved to hear donations of new tools are pouring in.
Rakich is grateful for the donations but hopes people will continue to help.
“I’ve had calls from Vermont so please check out your local Habitat,” Rakich said.
They’re still coordinating with some of the folks and corporations who have expressed interest in donating, and they could have everything replaced by next week.
