Thank you to our partners in the Poppy Campaign

Nov 6, 2014

 

In the days leading up to Remembrance Day, Canadians will be pausing at a Legion table or Poppy box in malls, stores and services across the country to pick up a Poppy. It is through the support of many partners from coast to coast to coast that enables the Legion to bring Poppies to all Canadians.

Legion volunteers from more than 1400 Branches across the country work with businesses and organizations in their communities to ask if we could distribute Poppies at their locations. Year after year, the support we receive from so many partners as they open their doors for the Poppy Campaign is overwhelming. From national retail outlets and banks, to restaurants, grocery stores, convenience and gas stores, to the flower shop around the corner… these organizations welcome Legion volunteers into their establishments to distribute Poppies and accept donations.  The Legion is truly grateful for the support of all our partners in providing Canadians with the opportunity to Remember our fallen, honour those who served and continue to serve, and support Veterans and their families in need.

To all our partners… THANK YOU!
