Royal Canadian Legion
Poppy Trust Fund
The mission of The Royal Canadian Legion, BURLINGTON BRANCH #60 is:
In essence, the purposes and objectives of the Legion were born of the need to further the spirit of comradeship and mutual assistance among all who have served, and to never forget the deeds of the fallen.
The major source of funding for the Legion to accomplish this most important work is the annual Poppy Campaign, the foundation of our Remembrance Program. It is the generosity of the people of Burlington that enables the Legion to ensure that our veterans and their dependants are cared for, and treated with the respect that they deserve. It also flows into the community at large, through our collective giving, to our hospital, and other good deeds.
This annual November campaign, which sees Poppies distributed to Canadians of all ages, serves to perpetuate Remembrance, by ensuring that the memory and sacrifices of our war veterans are never forgotten
