It's sad to report, but a business in Killeen, Texas, Variety at Peaceable Kingdom is already facing challenges in the new year. The nonprofit was broken into on January 17th, 2024 and nearly $20,000 in equipment and tools were stolen from the property. Now, Stacy Bruce, the Executive Director of Variety at Peaceable Kingdom is asking for our help.

Bruce recently spoke with KCEN, talking about her feelings in regards to the break-in.

While the robbery has affected her, she isn't going to stop helping many children in the Killeen, Texas area. She told KCEN: "We will continue to serve our kids."

But residents of the city of Killeen can help Bruce in one very big way: keeping a look out for the previously mentioned items.
