PARIS, Ky. (AP) - The Kiwanis Club of Paris says that about $1,000 worth of presents meant for area children have been stolen.

Kiwanis Club President Jesse Crockett tells local media he noticed the presents were missing Monday night, days before they were to be distributed as part of the annual Christmas for Kids program.

Crockett says club volunteers dedicate the entire year to raising money to buy hundreds of gifts that are distributed to about 75 different Bourbon County children. The gifts were stolen from a storage unit. There wasn’t any sign of a break-in and there aren’t any surveillance cameras nearby.

Late Wednesday, a Bourbon County business made a donation to the club to help offset the unexpected costs. Each child will still receive more than $50 worth of gifts Thursday night.
