MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Two catalytic converters were stolen from buses that are used to help deliver food and supplies to the homeless in Milwaukee. 

The Street Angels' buses are getting repaired but officials say it may take weeks. 

The Street Angels deliver food and supplies to the homeless 156 days a year, and until the buses are fixed, they are going to have to use one minivan. 

Milwaukee police say this has happened 150 times to people in the last month. 

Organizers say it is upsetting but they aren't going to let it stop them from helping those in need. 

“It’s disheartening, but the mission will continue. Tonight we’re taking out our mini van that we have and load it with supplies, everything that we can pack in there, our hot food, our lunches, coats, jackets, hats and gloves. We’ll make sure that, you know it’s going to take a little bit longer with just one vehicle being out, but we’ll reach everyone who is experiencing homelessness," said Shelly Sarasin, Street Angels co-director.
