Indiana 'giving tree' stolen from Kokomo yard

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Authorities say thieves stole an Indiana "giving tree" right out of the ground.

Michah Schroeter placed the 10-foot tree outside her Kokomo home. Neighbors have been filling it with clothing and supplies which are free to anyone who needs them.

Schroeter says the theft is not stopping her work to help others.

"They have to answer for what they do, and we just have to answer for what we are called to do," said Schroeter.

The Schroeter family also operates a community closet and pantry.
