A non-profit organization comes to our neighborhood once a month to pick up items we would like to donate to their cause.
Last month, I put out a bag of items the night before the collection date, when I woke up the next morning, the bag has been ransacked, and a pair of sneakers has been gone.
This time, I used a box to put in the items, and tape it with duct tape. Unfortunately, the box was ripped open and though the contents have been scattered around , nothing was missing this time. They were all household items.
What can I do to prevent this happening again? Would it be the raccoons that took the sneakers?
