A cargo van that supports social service outreach for The Salvation Army Hilo Temple Corps was stolen earlier today from the Corps parking lot, located at 219 Ponohawai Street. It is a white, 2006 Ford E-350 extended cargo van. A police report was filed with Hawaii Police Department.

“Not having our van creates logistical challenges for all of our outreach programs,” said Capt. Sam LeMar, Hawaii County Coordinator and Corps Officer for The Salvation Army Hilo Temple Corps. “We use this van for food pick-ups to support our food pantry and homeless feeding and different thrift store duties.”
