MEMBERS of a community group targeted in a $15,000 tool theft hope businesses will donate to the organisation.

The tools were taken from the Parklands Albury Wodonga depot on Lemke Road on Sunday night or Monday morning.

Ranger Danny Jones said he continued to find items that were missing.

“We’ve had to buy stuff just to function this week and we’ve taken items from our homes to make sure we can keep working,” he said.

“People have rung in and offered items but we don’t want to inconvenience people who are worse off than us.

“We’re hoping businesses might get on board with donations.”

Detective Leading Senior Constable Ian Deverell urged people to look out for the tools, many of which are marked ‘P.A.W.’ or ‘Mungab’. 

He is seeking information about the break-in.
