Coats Taken From Volunteers At Christmas Dinner

SCRANTON — Organizers of a Christmas Day dinner in Scranton are trying to figure out who swiped coats from volunteers.

Workers were cleaning up Thursday after Bob Bolus hosted his annual dinner. He says as volunteers were wrapping up after feeding about 3,000 people, they noticed someone stole their coats.

Some volunteers say they saw someone near the coat rack with a garbage bag.

“It’s just a disappointment that there’s this caliber of person that would actually walk in here and steal somebody’s coat that was volunteering their day, giving up their day, to help these people. And that’s what puts a damper on it,” Bob Bolus said.

Bolus hasn’t gone to police yet but he says he is checking surveillance video to look for the Christmas crook.

    OMG JUST WHEN I THOUGHT I HEARD IT ALL. THIS IS JUST PKAIN CRAZY WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE. PEOPLE TAKE TIME FROM THEIR BUSY LIVES TO HELP PEOPLE IN NEED AND THEY THANK THEM BY STEALING THEIR COATS I AM JUST BLOWN AWAY BY THIS IT MAKES ME PHYSICALLY ILL. IM SURE IF THIS PERSON OR PERSONS NEEDED A WARM COAT IM SURE THERE WOULD BE SOMEONE VERY WILLING TO MAKE SURE THEY WOULD GET ONE FOR THEM. IM AFRAID THOUGH THIS WAS NOT THE INTENSION OF THE THEIF. THIS IS TRUELY UNFORGIVABLE AND I HOPE THEY CATCH THIS THEIF AND THROW THE BOOK AT THEM MAYBE EVEN THE BIBLE. SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!
