TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - A donated garage door has replaced one that was spray-painted with a swastika and a profane message cursing Arabs at a Lebanese family’s Ohio home.

WTOL-TV reports an installer and a radio station donated the new door Monday to help the family move past the incident.

Moustafa Eltataway says his family appreciates the support they’ve received since his sister discovered the vandalism last week at the Sylvania Township home.

She painted a red heart over the swastika to reflect their community’s support. Then, over the weekend, a couple hundred supporters joined members of the Toledo Symphony to sing outside the home. They scrawled encouraging messages on the defaced door about welcoming neighbors and love conquering hate.

The family is considering preserving or displaying the door.

Police continue investigating the graffiti.
