The Learning Village of Faith Lutheran Church Hit Be Thieves Over Weekend
By Lehigh Acres Gazette
We would like to thank Evan Kerr, our HERO, for doing the right thing and reporting our climbing structure as “found” to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office. We would like to thank Lee County Sheriff’s Office for assisting us in the recovery of our toys for the preschool children. The students were so excited to have their toys and climber return!
Thank you to the organizations who reached out their support: Temple Judea Preschool of South Fort Myers, John Melton, Integral Building Corporation of Naples, Lehigh Acres residents, Learning Village families past and present and Faith Lutheran Congregational Members.
Thank you from all of us at The Learning Village Preschool and the little hearts of our students!
Director Lisa Peters said on Facebook, It is with a sad, angry and confused heart to report that someone has stolen from The Learning Village of Faith Lutheran Church this weekend.
They have stolen their hula hoops, their waffle blocks, their basketball hoop and their climbing structure off the playground.
According to a post on Facebook, “We can only pray that those who took from our beautiful children really were in desperate need of those items.”
As for us here, we have to try to soothe children just learning about sharing with others and learning how to take turns. We have to explain that is not “ok” to take from others even though some adults thought it was ok to take from them.
