After thief stole 14-year-old's wheelchair from her front porch, people in Albany, NY, donated enough to replace it and buy 2 additional chairs for needy kids.
"The theft of a girl's wheelchair that sparked an outpouring of community support has spilled over to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. After 14-year-old Rockelle 'Rocky' Valentino's wheelchair was stolen last week from in front of her Winthrop Avenue home, nearly a dozen people called the Times Union to offer money or to replace the chair."-- Keshia Clukey, the Albany Times Union
