NBC NATIONAL NEWS — A single mother with two young children is working to recover from a devastating burglary on Thanksgiving. A thief broke into her food cart on Southeast Belmont Street in the middle of the night.
"I had a lot of cash that night because many people bought pies on Thanksgiving," said Mary Sheridan who says she usually never leaves cash inside her business, but did on the holiday.
"To work so hard and get great sales and then to come back and find it was all stolen was pretty devastating," she said.
She put that heartbreak into words and posted a letter to the thief outside her food cart explaining how the money was for rent and her kids' Christmas.
