Lincoln community comes together to support local bakery

The community stepped up to help Butterfly Bakery after the business was broken into overnight.

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The Lincoln community came together on Thursday to support the Butterfly Bakery after the business was broken into overnight.

Co-owner of Butterfly Bakery, Jenn Daum was shocked when she woke up to a text saying her business had been broken into. Whoever had broken into the bakery smashed the glass on one of the doors, stole money and iPads.

Fortunately, the Lincoln community stepped up and showed their support for the bakery. Daum says the store had one of its busiest days on Thursday.

“I promised myself all day that I wouldn’t cry but this mom came in today with a free mom hug t-shirt that they wear at the pride parades and I just started crying,” said Daum. “She’s like, do you need a hug? and I was like, yes I do. The outpouring of love has floored me yet again.”

Daum says she hopes whoever broke into her bakery finds peace this holiday season.

“People are like, are you angry? And I’m not really,” said Daum. “Whoever broke in must’ve needed that more than we did at that moment. So I hope that what they get, they can find some sense of peace because they must be kind of tormented right now.”

Lincoln Police are currently investigating the break-in.
