Family gets camping gear stolen; Problem Solvers, Bass Pro Shops lend a hand

DENVER -- For the Glasscock family in Denver, it was going to be the trip of trips.

"See a sunset for real. See a sunrise for real. Watching the forest wake up in the morning, a magical time," Scott Glasscock said.

It was going to be daughter Abby's very first campout.

"I was actually excited about the s'mores. It's marshmallow chocolate gooeyness is super good," she said.

That magical time, however, never happened because on the way to California, the family truck and more than $3,000 worth of camping gear were stolen from a hotel parking lot.

"All of our camping gear was still in the bed of the truck which was covered up with the tonneau cover so as the truck left, so did all our gear," Scott Glasscock said.

"I had a tub full of kitchen equipment, so the stove, the grill, the pots and pans."

And sleeping bags, lanterns and a tent.  Everything.

The FOX31 Problem Solvers reached out to Bass Pro Shops in Denver, and together we wanted to give the Glasscock's a happy ending.

Suzanne Myers from Bass Pro Shops greeted the Glasscocks with a little surprise.

Tent, sleeping bags, camp chairs, lanterns, cooking gear. A little something to cheer them up.

"It breaks our hearts, so we wanted to do what we could to help get them back out camping," Myers said.

"It's very humbling that these guys would just say, here you go. It's great," Glasscock said.
