Otto’s creche was broken into this morning.
Otto’s community-based, not-for-profit, cares-for-120-kids-over-the-course-of-a-week childcare centre.
They broke a window to get in and took, among other things, the safe (ripped it out, destroying the cupboard it was hidden in), the computer with the children’s developmental records and also lots of the things (vouchers and products) that have been donated for our upcoming major fundraiser.
This is the second break-in in about a 2-week period. Clearly, the first was just to see where things were.
The goods have apparently been recovered (dumbass robbers) but it is still extremely upsetting for everyone.
Robbery is despicable. That’s a given. But how much lower is it when people steal from community-based organisations that are there to help people.
