GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - There's a hole in the window and glass on the floor.

"It's just a tragedy," says Annie Lewis from The Family Partnership. "It brings tears to my eyes."

Early Thursday morning, someone smashed a window and grabbed dozens of wrapped Christmas presents meant for needy families in north Minneapolis. According to the staff at The Family Partnership close to $1,000 worth of gifts were likely taken.

"We are really surprised, devastated, and saddened," said Terese Haggerty Lueck, the organization's Child Development Specialist. "We work with these families and we know their needs."

The presents had been donated by area churches, business and individuals in the community are intended to go to those in need.

The Golden Valley Police Department is investigating the case but no arrests have been made.

If you'd like to help donate gifts, you can reach the staff at The Family Partnership by visiting their website or by calling 612-341-1612.
