Monday February 24, 2020 was National Cupcake Day for SPCAs and Humane Societies across Canada.
Many local businesses, restaurants, offices and schools in Lindsay participated by hosting cupcake parties and collecting donations to help support the Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes.
Yesterday, at 11:50 am, a man attended a business on Angeline Street North in Lindsay and stole the donation box from the cupcake sale that was taking place.
The man is described as being between 40 and 70 years old, grey hair, with a scruffy appearance.
He was wearing a dark toque, military green coat, dark pants and light coloured tall boots.
National Cupcake Day is one of the biggest fundraisers for the local Human Society.
