I can’t believe it’s taken this long to create a better Poppy Fund Donation box. Every year we hear of boxes being stolen. Yes, hard to believe a thief could be so heartless to steal from veterans but every year it happens across the country. It’s taken a frustrated Canadian, Dan Kroffat, to come up with a theft-proof box. A cable is attached to the metal donation box which is then attached to the counter. At this point though the new poppy donation box is only being tested in Cochrane. Why isn’t it happening across the country? This is a no-brainer. There are few opportunities to raise money for our veterans. Let’s not allow thieves to take another cent.
