Converters stolen out of Heartland Community Foundation vans

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - The Heartstrings Community Foundation faced a major loss on Thursday.

The organization puts adults with developmental disabilities to work. Someone vandalized three of the agency's vans on Thursday night by stealing the converters.

The group employs the adults for a number of jobs, including selling clothes, delivering goodie bags and making gift baskets.

Heartstrings' founder Anne Hull said the culprits did more damage than they may know.

"You think you've gained a little bit of cash in your pocket," Hull said. "But you've damaged your whole community."

The damage is worth $3,500. The group is using personal vehicles to fill the hole left by the vandalized vans.

People interested in donating can bring cash directly to the organization's office at 7086 W. 105th St. in Overland Park, or they can visit
