The Easter Grinch paid a visit to Torbay on the North Shore of Auckland on Saturday and stole the three-year-old Easter eggs.

The boy's father, Kyle Williamson, said Thing his weekly store and Easter gifts were stolen from his father while he stopped at the warehouse in Albany to quickly pick up a pair of shoes for his son after shopping.

"It sucks," he said.

However, in the true spirit of Easter, the community quickly went to Williamson's aid and offered him presents for Easter eggs and other groceries to help him.

Williamson explained that his ute was full of tools, so trusting that everything would be all right, he left his purchases at the underground parking table while he showed up at the store.

He said he was forced to return every 12 minutes later to find bags of groceries.

He spent about $ 190 at the grocery store, including buying meat to feed six people during the long weekend and Easter eggs for his son and partner.

He went online to share his frustrations on a local Grapevine Facebook page. He was not expecting the "incredible" response from his community.

One person, named Mal, even offered Williamson and his family a meal at his restaurant – Go Go Mexico – for free, whenever they wanted.

"[People’s reactions] gave me a little faith in humanity, "he said.

"It has meant a lot to me … it shows that there are people willing to help even if there are low people willing to accept."

It was not about the money – Williamson countered the food that was taken – but the principle.

"I just hope the people or the family that needed it," he said.
