PORTLAND — Mary Sheridan rarely leaves cash in her Portland food cart but she did on Thanksgiving night because of the holiday. It was $1,800 because many people bought pies.
A thief broke into the Honey Pot Bakery cart Thursday night and took the money she needed for her kids’ Christmas gifts.
After Sheridan shared her story with the media, KGW reported donations poured in — nearly double the amount that was stolen.
Sheridan says she can use that money to help others.
