A burglary in Lincoln has left a bike shop unable to fix repairs.
It happened at the Bike Kitchen near 15th and Sumner. It's a nonprofit repair shop that helps people at no charge. Nearly $1000 in tools were stolen after someone broke into the place. The shop runs entirely on donations and grants.
"We can't do anything without our tools and we've helped so many people that the thought that someone would come in and take away what we use is kind of obscene. I was really devastated," says Meghan Sullivan, a volunteer mechanic.
They're asking for your help.
A benefit dinner will be held at Pepe's restaurant in Havelock on Sunday, July 22 from 5 to 8 p.m. to help raise money.
Donations can also be dropped off at the Bike Kitchen on Sundays from 12-4 p.m. or Mondays from 5-9 p.m.
