Those supplies were intended to feed and clothe about 400 homeless vets during a three-day gathering at Camp Pollock in Sacramento later this month. John Buck is with Sacramento Stand Down, the group organizing the event.

"You can't stay depressed over this. You simply have to move forward and try to get replacements because our only other choice would be to cancel the event."

The event is still on for September 21st through the 23rd.
Buck says volunteers have 10 days to try and replace all the things that were taken - cooking utensils, clothing…even electrical equipment.
"We actually have dentists come out to the site to provide dental services and it's all free for the vets. But you need to be able to have the electrical connection to be able to provide that kind of service."
Police are investigating the thefts which happened sometime over the Labor Day Weekend.
