The men estimated they will need between $40 to $50,000 over the next three months to recover their losses. 

Despite the setback, McNair is not resentful against the culprits, telling Fox News he believes in forgiveness. 

“I just think it was an individual that’s been misled to understand that we represent something that’s not ethical. But my thing is, why go around destroying people’s property?” McNair said. “That’d be like if someone’s name is Muhammad, it makes them a terrorist. I don’t get it.” 

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the company recover its losses. By Tuesday afternoon, it had raised more than $3,500 of its $50,000 goal. 

The page’s organizer said it was not the first time the truck had been vandalized. 

“Unfortunately this time, the damage was very significant and will cost upwards of $50,000,” the organizer wrote. “I’m hoping we as a community in Portland can come together to help this nonprofit.”

Fox News has reached out to the Portland Police Department seeking comment on the vandalism. Portland’s city council defunded its police department by about $15 million in July 2020, but has since added funding back as crime has soared across the country.
