Poppy Fund Campaign

From: November 9, 2017 - 9:15am    To: November 10, 2017 - 11:00am

The Royal Canadian Legion is Canada's largest Veteran organization formed in 1926 following the unity of various World War I Veterans' organizations. The Legion was founded with the clear purpose of service to Canada. The Legion has been engaging in many new and distinctive ways to support Veterans including programs to get homeless Veterans back on their feet, assisting Veterans with transition back to civilian life, supporting a PSTD program that sees soldiers helping soldiers, and they continue to advocate to secure better benefits, pensions and improvements to the new Veteran charter.

We would like to thank the Legion for providing each of our students with a poppy to wear as a mark of remembrance.  In support of their efforts, we ask that all students bring in a donation for the Poppy Fund.  Donations will be collected from students in their classrooms on November 9-10, which raises money for Veterans and their families, in their time of need.
