The Royal Canadian Legion 170 of Castlegar/Robson is thanking the Castlegar area for helping them have a successful Poppy Campaign in 2019.
The campaign generated over $16,000 through local volunteering efforts, setting a record for the local Legion.
“2019 was also a great year for supporting our community,” said RCL170 representative Dean Burdeyny.
“We donated over $13,000 to various charities and organizations in our local area such as the food bank, Operation Track-shoe program, Robson Kids lunch program and Books for Kids.”
Last week the local Legion also donated $3,000 to help support Castlegar’s Air Cadets.
