We'd never expected that the box would be stolen. We're sorry for failing to deliver the support provided by residents.

This is precisely the problem, taking donations means taking also the responsibility of protecting them, not thinking that they could be stolen is not a justification, it just says the town office did not did what it was supposed to do.
You don't need to make a charitable donation. If you're a tax-payer, you're already donating.
Oi! What are you doing?
The donations would have been placed into a Urkaian account.
