Someone broke into the storage trailers at the Red Cross headquarters in southeast Fresno sometime overnight. It's this same trailer that was stolen and abandoned last week. Police later found it in an alley just a few blocks away.

This time thieves also pried open the door of a second trailer -- Making off with more than three thousand dollars worth of cots, chests, and emergency feeding supplies.

Alex Villa said, "We dedicate our time and services year-round to everyone who needs our help and then it's just kind of heartbreaking for people to take from us, when our mission is to solely help everyone out there."

The Red Cross says the loss means they won't be able to feed about two hundred people.

Workers are asking for donations to help re-stock their trailers.

In the meantime, the Red Cross is working to move their trailers into the Fresno Fire Department's gated lots.
