The leading purpose of the Poppy Fund is to provide assistance to retired servicemen and women and their dependents in need. You can donate locally by supporting your local Legion’s Poppy Campaign which runs from the last Friday in October to November 11.

The Legion gratefully accepts donations at Legion tables and Poppy boxes across Canada. Watch for our Poppy Volunteers at the Grafton Variety, Grafton Gas Station, Grafton Drug Store, Grafton Co-Op, Baltimore Variety, Turtle John’s Restaurant and Scenery Drive Restaurant.

Become a member of the Legion and support Veterans year-round. You don’t have to be a Veteran to join. Any Canadian citizen or citizen of an Allied nation who is 18 years of age or older is welcome to become a member of the Legion. The Legion gives in many ways, and by joining, you give too.
