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 runs from October 30th to November 11th.
The concept of Pop-Up Poppy locations is similar to that of a car wash or pancake breakfast fund raiser. For the next two Saturdays (Oct 31st and Nov 7th) between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., there will be various sites around town, including in front of the branch, where people may drive-by to get their Poppy (or order a wreath), and make a contact-free donation.
You can now make a donation to the Cochrane Legion or Poppy Fund through our website:
Donations are accepted on credit cards only. Please be aware that mobile devices cannot be used for donations, only tablets and computers.
You may also donate through www.poppyboxabnwt.com. Mechanisms have been put into place to ensure that donations made by this means are directed to Cochrane Branch 15 Trust.
