MARIETTA, GA (WXIA) -- For Loving Arms Cancer Outreach Center, the robbery was a devastating blow, but the community has been quick to respond.
It started a few days ago when Home Depot replaced the Loving Arms safe with one that was double the size and doubly secure. Now it's gone a lot further -- with a $5,000 check and $500 more from private donors.
Then, a necklace from another donor to replace the one that was stolen. It will auctioned off to raise money for the Center.
The Cumberland Diamond Exchange has stepped up with diamond and ruby earrings, while the Cobb County Realtors have planned a golf tournament.
And today, all dressed in lavender to pay tribute to cancer patients, Loving Arms hosted its quarterly bake sale. They raised more than $2,000, but this time the event took on a special meaning.
