Church theft

WASHINGTON TWP., Pa. -

Members of one Berks County church say they are praying for thieves who stole two clothing donation bins.

State police say the bins were taken from outside the Bethany Evangelical Church in
Washington Township last week.

Church officials say they were surprised by the theft.

The Rev. Dennis Brubacher said, "Our hearts immediately went out to the fact these people need to be remembered in our prayers, whatever their desperate need might have been."

The church is working on getting new containers, which are about 4 feet by 6 feet.

No arrests have been made.
