October is just around the corner, and Legion Branches are starting to gear up for the annual Poppy Campaign!
From the last Friday of October to November 11, tens of millions of Canadians wear a Poppy as a visual pledge to honor Canada’s Veterans and remember those who sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today.
In our most recent reported campaign year, the 2017 Poppy Campaign, 19.8 million Poppies were distributed, and more than $16 million dollars was disbursed between October 2017 to October 2018 to support Veterans and their families.
To make 2019 even more successful, Branches need volunteers to help with organization, preparation, and distribution during the Poppy Campaign. Volunteer at your local Legion and help ensure Canadians ‘never forget.’
