Poppy Funds are collected annually to provide countless services and supports to our veterans, their families and retired RCMP members, who find themselves in need. For example, in the last year, we used Poppy Funds to purchase winter clothes for a veteran who would have had to choose between food and clothing, construction tools so a veteran could start a job and special medical equipment for a veteran’s child.
We help veterans with a range of supports from providing them with life’s basic needs, to funding research into mental and physical health needs for veterans and their families. We help find new, innovative ways, from the simplest to most complex, to help them live full and productive lives after their service.
Your generous donations have been the reason we have been able to support our veterans and your continued support is more important this year than ever.
