HILO, Hawaii (AP) - Arc of Hilo is able to get back to work employing adults with disabilities after the community responded to thousands of dollars' worth of equipment that was stolen on Thanksgiving.

Board chairman Kurt Corbin wrote in an email that an anonymous donor said she read a Hawaii Tribune-Herald article on the theft that prompted her to act. The newspaper reports Corbin said she sent in a check covering the entire estimated cost of the loss, at $4,866.

Numerous other donations have also been received.

A theft at Arc of Hilo 20 years ago was also met with community support.
