"The experience has led to a conflicted sense of vulnerability and thankfulness," Wehner said in the statement. "My heart felt vulnerable because of the sense of trespass. It never feels good to have someone enter your space and do damage. The heart wants to ask questions of justification: Who would do this? Why on earth would someone take toys that were donated? This sense of vulnerability kept me awake until the early hours of that Monday morning.
"Let me be clear. This loss was not devastating. We lost a couple of large bags full of toys and some office equipment and tools. But if you have the ability to assist us this holiday season with an extra gift for ... a financial gift to help with replacement/repair costs of the office equipment, we would be so grateful."
Wehner also said the organization's Amazon wish list ist had been updated "to reflect the loss from the break-in."
