LEWISTON — A Lewiston mission that provides clothing, free meals and a safe place for at-risk youth to do homework has been vandalized twice in the past week.

Chris Pope, director of The Root Cellar, says a rock the size of a softball was thrown through a double-paned glass door in the rear of the building on Monday.

Then on Tuesday, a rock was hurled through a front window.

Police are investigating.

Pope tells the Sun Journal he is not angry. He says he wants to speak to the vandals to find out what motivated them.

He says the mission will continue as normal during repairs.
