Waltham Real Estate Broker Steps Forward To Pay For Trees Stolen From West Roxbury

BOSTON (CBS) – A good Samaritan has stepped forward so Christmas will be bright despite the theft of more than a dozen Christmas trees slated to be sold for charity.

Patricia Villani says she couldn’t believe it when she heard the news on WBZ.

Over the weekend, thieves broke into a West Roxbury supply store and stole trees owner Al Todesca planned to sell and donate the money to local children’s hospitals.

Villani, a Waltham real estate broker, stepped up and offered to pay $800 for a dozen new trees to replace the ones that were stolen.

“You wake up Christmas morning and you know you’ve done good things for some young people and that’s what I feel is very important for all of us to do especially during the holiday season and year-round,” Villani said.

Boston Police hope to track down the thieves.

Villani just hopes the thieves never need the kind of help they so brazenly stole from children in need.
