    There is no excuse for theft...and there's no excuse for not helping them replenish their supplies. I plan on donating some tools I don't use anymore...I hope others will show the TRUE meaning of Christmas and donate as well!

    This is extremely sad that someone (or some group) stole from Habitat for Humanity, a charity for low income people. There is no excuse for this theft.
