Don't let one bad apple spoil the whole bunch. Like many of you, I wondered how in the world did the guy think he could get away with stealing a kettle from the Salvation Army? Surely he is going to get caught.
Many Kettles have locks on them so I wouldn't worry about another person taking the money meant for good. You can even donate online with your specific city you want the money distributed to, even Grand Junction.
The greatest that the Grand Junction Salvation army needs right now is Non-perishable food items, that according to the Salvation Army website Grand Junction.
