The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 191 Chemainus received a Donation of $5,492.00 to our 2020 Poppy campaign from 49th Parallel Chemainus Store. This donation has enabled Branch 191 to reach our goal during an incredibly challenging fund-raising year due to the Pandemic. The initiative by 49th during the past two weeks giving a $20.00 gift certificate to everyone donating $50.00 to the Poppy Campaign was certainly well received in our community. We know many of these $20.00 gift certificates are being donated to Harvest House Food Bank, a win for all the community.
The Poppy campaign funds raised are kept in the Branch and are distributed to assist Veterans in our community when required.
The Chemainus Legion Volunteers have developed a great relationship with 49th Parallel during the past months. We thank 49th Parallel Owners, Managers, especially Paul McGregor and all the staff in Chemainus Store for this exceptional donation.
