The 2020 Poppy Campaign
The Poppy Campaign officically commences each year across Canada on the last Friday in October, until Remembrance Day. This year, the Poppy Campaign is October 30 through November 11.
As the national symbol of Remembrance, the red poppy represents the ongoing thankfulness Canadians have for all fallen military and RCMP Veterans.
Funds donated in Leduc and Leduc County during the Poppy Campaign are saved in a Trust Fund, and distributed locally to help support Veterans and their families, communities and to promote Remembrance, in strict accordance with the Poppy Manual.
New this year, we have applied QRL barcodes to the poppy boxes, so that donations may be electronically deposited into the Trust Fund. Cash donations may still be made into the poppy boxes.
Wear a poppy,
observe a ceremony,
and show your recognition for those who gave
their lives for our freedom.
