MRM's Bargain Center donation bins ransacked

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

The donation bins at Montana Rescue Mission's Bargain Center on 24th Street in Billings were ransacked over the weekend.

Photos of the ransacking can be seen on the Montana Rescue Mission's Facebook page.

Denise Smith with the mission said theft from the donation bins is a common occurrence. She said these thefts cause a major inconvenience for MRM and asks anyone who is in need of those items should simply ask for them instead of stealing.

"The donors' intention is to assist us in serving the homeless and the poor," Smith said. "All of the income that we make off of our bargain centers goes to supporting the shelters and the meal program. So when individuals are stealing, they're stealing - not from MRM persay - they're stealing from the service that we're providing to our guests."

Smith urges donors to drop off any donations during business hours, Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
