POPPY CAMPAIGN


POPPY CAMPAIGN

The Department of Canadian & World Studies is set to begin the Poppy Campaign at Dante. The Poppy Campaign will begin on Monday, November 5 to Thursday, November 8, 2012.

How much should you give?

We suggest that you give according to the dictates of your conscience. As with most things, the cost of all benefits the Poppy Fund provides for our veterans continues to rise, therefore, it takes more money to do the same job.

When you give to the Poppy Campaign, you are remembering the sacrifices of the war dead but are also helping the living and the dependants of those who have served our country.

Today, the Poppy Campaign is one of the Royal Canadian Legion's most important programs. The money raised from poppy sales provides direct assistance for ex-service people in financial distress, as well as funding for medical appliances and research, home services, care facilities, and numerous other purposes.

Thank you for supporting the Poppy Campaign!
