Royal Canadian Legion poppy campaign kicks off Friday
The Royal Canadian Legion officially kicks off its 2020 poppy campaign on Friday.
With branches facing financial hardship across the country because of COVID-19 closures and restrictions, local branches are appealing for donations this year.
Poppies are available at a number of Kingston businesses and donations can also be made directly to the Limestone Branch 560 or other area Legions.
A pilot project has been introduced adding new touchless donation boxes this year in partnership with HSBC Bank Canada, with boxes available at most branches and some select retail locations.
