KCRG says the group Central Furniture Rescue serves thousands of people in our area by delivering donated furniture, so needless to say, their trailer is a big part of their operation.

It's one of two trailers the organization has, a new trailer that had gone missing from their location at 18th Ave. SW.

If anyone sees a trailer that looks similar or has plate numbers “HU1206″ please contact the Cedar Rapids Police Department 319-286-5491. The organization's president and executive director Susan Johnston is overwhelmed with appreciation for the community's support in helping locate the missing trailer, telling KCRG, "every time I see it’s [their Facebook post] been shared again, my heart just explodes and, I’m going to cry again. It shows how much the community supports what we do. I’ve always believed the community wants to help. They just didn’t know how and we became a conduit for it."

The trailer helps double what they can deliver to those in need in the community and they'd appreciate help in finding it.

We will keep you updated on the case and let you know when the stolen trailer has been recovered.
