EHT PAL, Community FoodBank Burglarized
Two Egg Harbor Township community organizations were burglarized late Monday by burglars who used cinder blocks to break in and steal money from donation containers and vandalize the facilities.
Workers at EHT's Police Athletic League and the Community FoodBank of New Jersey Southern Branch, organizations that help those in need and do so much good, were left shaking their heads after the brazen robberies.
"It's heartbreaking on so many levels", said Hector Tavarez, executive director of the Egg Harbor Township PAL.
