The St. Peter’s Goodwill Thrift Shoppe is appealing for help after their sign was stolen during the Christmas break.

It’s the second time the sign has been stolen in as many years. “We just find it hard to understand,” says thrift store volunteer Ken Nelles.

Last year the sign was located destroyed at the bottom of a hill. “One side was scraped right off, like they pulled it along like a sled,” he said.

This time the sign was ripped off its mooring, and hasn’t been seen since. Nelles said the repeat vandalism incidents are “disturbing.” The sign cost about $200 — a cost the charity shop will have to replace out of their profits if it is not returned.

They encourage those responsible to return the white metal sign to the church, no questions asked.

The charity shop is located in St. Peter’s Anglican Church at 622 2nd St. West.

The exact date and time of the most recent theft is unknown.
