Thanksgiving Food Donations Stolen

APOLLO BEACH, Fla. (AP) _ A trailer filled with about $2,000 worth of donated Thanksgiving food for the poor has been stolen from a church near Tampa.

The Calvary Lutheran Church had collected dozens of bags of yams, stuffing, cranberry sauce and other Thanksgiving treats.

The 12-foot trailer was parked on church-owned property and disappeared sometime between Sunday afternoon and Tuesday morning.

The broken lock was found nearby.

The food was to be distributed to needy people in the mostly rural areas south of Tampa.

The church figures it lost $2,000 to $2,500 worth of food, as well as the $2,000 trailer.
