Every year, from the last Friday of October to November 11, tens of millions of Canadians wear a Poppy as a visual pledge to honour Canada’s Veterans and remember those who sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today. While the Poppy is distributed freely to all who wish to wear one, the Legion gratefully accepts donations to the Poppy Fund.
The Poppy Campaign is very much a local initiative, conducted by Legion Branches in cities, towns and communities across the country. Donations collected during the Poppy Campaign are held in Trust at the branch level to directly support Veterans and their families within their community and to help ensure Canadians ‘never forget’.
In the days leading up to November 11, Poppies can be seen in every corner of this great country. This show of support and display of remembrance would not be possible without the efforts of thousands of Legionnaires who volunteer to distribute Poppies to the community through schools, community organizations and local businesses. We are so grateful for their efforts, and for the support of the many partners, local and national, who welcome Legion volunteers and Poppy boxes into their locations.
The Legion encourages Canadians to donate locally to your Legion Branch to support Veterans and Remembrance in your community. Donations to the Legion Poppy Trust Fund are never used for Legion operations. Donations are placed in Trust to be used to help Veterans and their dependents in need, and to honour their sacrifices. The Legion provides financial assistance and support to all Veterans, including Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP, and their families who are in need. Visit us at the Enderby Legion in person to donate to Branch 98, or click the button below to donate online!
