According to the Baptists, the items included new clothing, shoes, backpacks and school supplies.
The Baptist program distributes the items to children in 25 migrant centers throughout the San Joaquin Valley and rest of the state, according to Baptist officials.
"The storage facility was stacked almost to the ceiling with shoes, backpacks and clothing for both boys and girls," the Baptist Press quoted an official as saying. "About 90 percent of all the supplies designated for the summer ministry were taken during the burglary."
According to the Baptists, last year’s program for migrants involved 123 churches in California.
Among distributions were "1,075 backpacks filled with school supplies were distributed and more than 1,950 children received new sets of clothes. More than 1,500 families received food staples such as beans, rice, flour and sugar."
Money for the program can be donated online at CSBC.com or mailed to CSBC, 678 E. Shaw Ave., Fresno, CA 93710, designated for "migrant ministry clothing."
