Massachusetts food pantry sees $11,000 catalytic converter stolen from truck, local company offers to help – Fall River Reporter
A real estate agency has come to the rescue of a Massachusetts food pantry that has been grounded by a thief.
According to the Weymouth Food Pantry, the catalytic converter was stolen from their truck this week, effectively immobilizing the pantry.
“We can’t find a rental with a tailgate in New England to keep us going, and it’s the first of September (think movers and a big college move over the weekend), so rental inventory in general is non-existent. We need help serving our neighbors this Saturday. Does anyone know anyone with a 20 foot (or more) box truck with a tail lift that can help? We will need it (with or without a driver) from 7:30 a.m. to noon this Saturday. God knows what it’s going to cost to fix, or how long it will take.
The pantry found the repair would cost $11,000, but a local company came to their rescue.
Molisse Realty Group offered the Pantry the use of their van on Saturday mornings to help save the day.
“We are at Old South Union Church – Weymouth this morning unloading for our pantry distribution into the truck we have borrowed from Molisse Realty Group ♥️. Thank you Mike Molisse for keeping us on the road and helping us get food where it needs to go.
It is not yet known whether the suspect in the theft has been identified.
