LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – A youth group at a local church is looking for help. They say the trailer they use to serve the community was stolen over the weekend.
The Charlotte Ambassadors Pathfinder Club said it held fundraisers a few years ago to purchase that trailer. They use it to collect food for the local food pantry and help families in need.
The group also uses the trailer for camping, as it encourages young people to spend time outdoors.
Over the weekend, someone cut the lock on the trailer in the church parking lot and then drove off with the trailer.
The Pathfinders told 6 News they’re not mad about it, they just want their trailer back.
“Our club is small and we had a hard time making enough money to buy that trailer,” said Tim Castanon, director of the Charlotte Ambassadors Pathfinder Club. “It had graphics, with our logo.”
Assistant Principal Sheri Castanon suggested that the person who took the trailer could simply return it without asking questions. “The people who took it, you know, they may have needed it for some reason over the weekend. Maybe they could return it and give it to us to the youth group,” she said.
The group also has a big event this summer and they need the preview to prepare for the opportunity. Anyone with information that could help find the trailer is asked to call Charlotte police.
