St. Louis (KSDK) - We have a 5 on Your Side update to tell you about. The members of a local pantry are thanking the St. Louis community for their generosity.
Last week we told you about the Arnold Food Pantry.
Thieves targeted it several times, doing a lot of damage to the food delivery vans.
In all, the pantry estimated having to pay $700 out-of-pocket in theft and damage.
Thursday they called to tell us that throughout the week nearly a half-dozen people came in with donations after seeing our story.
They received more than $1,200 from the community.
They plan to use that money to purchase supplies for the needy.
