A Surrey outreach group is now without a much-needed vehicle after its van was stolen and rendered undriveable.

Sometime between New Year’s Eve and Jan. 1, the van belonging to NightShift Street Ministries was stolen from a commercial complex at 24 Avenue and King George Boulevard. It was recovered on Jan. 2 in the 13500-block of 77 Avenue.

The rear lock was broken, which is believed to be a point of entry, and the front dash was removed. It has been determined to be unsafe for driving.

NightShift, which feeds the hungry every day of the year, uses the 10-year-old van for daily pick-ups of clothing donations and supplies that allows it to operate its outreach programs.

“In the meantime, we’re limping,” said Executive Director MaryAnne Connor. “Daily pick-ups are stalling.”

She’s currently waiting to hear from the RCMP and her insurance provider to figure out how she’s going to proceed.
