On Thursday, April 30, Bessie Kirkland will be holding a benefit bake sale at the Alberta Laundry, 21st and Alberta Street to raise money for a stolen electric wheel chair. The sale will begin at 2 p.m.

Kirkland says she is trying to raise enough money for her friend Sherise to purchase a new electric wheelchair – what she calls her "legs."

The chair was stolen off Sherise's back porch last week. Kirkland says a non-motorized wheelchair will not fit on the vehicle she uses to get around, preventing Sherise from going to church and other activities.
