SUCCESSFUL POPPY CAMPAIGN

It was a very different Poppy Campaign this year.

Due to COVID-19 safety concerns, there were fewer volunteers, fewer opportunities for “tagging”, and the Cadets, who do such a great job for us every year, were forbidden by the DND to assist this year.

The good citizens of Kitchener and Waterloo came through, and in fact the total donations were actually higher than last year!

2019 - $229,434.61

2020 - $245, 014.47*

Words cannot express our sincere thanks to the generous citizens of K-W.

 *Amount shown includes the following:

$63,065.16 - Counter Top Boxes and Tagging from:

Royal Canadian Legion, Fred Gies Branch 50

Royal Canadian Legion, Polish Veterans Branch 412

Royal Canadian Legion, Waterloo Branch 530

 

$110,045.16 Household Mail-in (envelopes)

$  57,313.95 Online donations 

$    5,350.00 Wreath Sales
