In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the RMR Association (Legion Branch 14) will mail out poppies in exchange for a donation. If you are more comfortable to receive a poppy by post instead of in person, please visit poppybymail.ca.
Every year, The Royal Canadian Legion conducts the Poppy campaign, along with thousands of our members who volunteer from coast to coast to coast, to raise funds in support of Veterans and their families. Poppies are distributed freely, but your generous donations are invaluable.
The RMR Association (Legion Branch 14) will be conducting the annual poppy campaign in Westmount from 29 October – 10 November 2021, with kiosks at the IGA Alexis-Nihon, 5 Saisons on Greene Avenue, as well as Metro Grocers on Victoria Avenue. Volunteers welcome, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
