HOLLYWOOD (CBSMiami) – Good karma has made its way to the YMCA in Hollywood.
Workers were busy Tuesday morning installing 10 new 50” inch flat screen TVs at the facility located at 3161 Taft Street replace the ones stolen in a burglary earlier this month.
The new sets were made possible thanks to donations from the YMCA’s partners in the community and anonymous donations made to CBS4’s Neighbors 4 Neighbors.
“The members were just so upset that someone would steal because when you steal from the Y you steal from the community,” Maryalicia Johnson, spokesperson for the YMCA.
“I thought it was horrible, absolutely horrible,” said Linda Kaplen who works out in the gym.
Many who use the gym said a lack of TVs made a real difference in the work out routines.
“It’s really kind of hard to keep going, when you don’t have anything to occupy your mind,” said Jim Bevis. “So instead of an hour, hour and half, I’ll do a half hour, 45 minutes.”
In reviewing the security video, Hollywood police said it’s going to be difficult to identify them because they wore masks.
No arrests have been made in the theft.
