The manager of the store said there was only about $20 in the box, but that money is meant to help veterans.
After the story aired on CTV Winnipeg on Thursday, a number of viewers contacted the newsroom, with one person saying they’ve made a donation to the Royal Canadian Legion to match the money believed to be missing.
