The K-W Poppy Fund wishes to humbly thank the good citizens of Kitchener and Waterloo for making 2014 one of the best campaigns ever. Total donations, as of December 10th 2014, were up almost 13% over the same period one year ago.
Thank You K-W!
Your kindness and generosity has ensured that the K-W Poppy Fund remains a viable organisation, capable of supporting our Veterans in time of need, and promoting Remembrance.
Remember, we do all this with only one paid, part-time employee. (Who does the work of three people, I might add) The vast majority of Poppy Fund labour is provided by volunteers from local Legions, other local Veterans clubs, and local Cadet Squadrons.
You may rest assued that your donations to the Poppy Fund are considered a sacred trust, and are only disbursed according to the strict regulations of The Royal Canadian Legion Ontario Command.
The details of this years campaign results, along with a comparison to last year, can be seen under the "REPORTS" tab at the top of this site. Please note: Although the ANAF 247 total is officially recorded as "nil", Members of that organisation were indeed out tagging and placing boxes. Their income from this year's campaign is included in the Branch 50 figure.
Again, Thank You for your support!
