LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A donation box for local youth-based volunteer group was stolen from a business on Dixie Highway.

Last week, we shared the story of a west Louisville teen who gave his shoes to a homeless man. The picture and video became a big talker on social media. 

Now the group "Purp Me" says a donation box was stolen two weeks ago. 

Organizers say it wasn't much money, but for them, every little bit counts. 

"It really upset me, because I am really passionate about this organization, and we just donate all of our money to the homeless and inner-city kids," said Hannah Gould the "Purp Me" volunteer coordinator. "It really hurt me that people would do that, you know?" 

You can help "Purp Me" by donating at any Fifth Third Bank location. 

The group's GoFundMe page has raised nearly $7,000. You can donate here.
