Poppy Campaign 2021
ATTENTION MEMBERS OF BARRIE LEGION!
Have some free time? We could use your help!
Released October 8, 2021
Preparations for the 2021 Poppy Campaign are already underway!
Once again, we will be distributing approximately 150,000 poppies in Barrie. There are 27 routes in total, including schools, LCBO and Beer Store outlets, all the big box stores, coffee shops and more! And this year, canvassing is back! Many thousands more poppies will be distributed through in person canvassing this year!
If you are a member of the Barrie Legion, we need your help!
1. Preparing all routes for delivery. This will begin October 23, and probably run the entire week thru to October 29. (delivery day).
2. Drivers with a vehicle to deliver these routes around the city on October 29-30, and preferably the same drivers to pick up the boxes on November 12-13.
3. Canvassing is back! As you know we could not use canvassers last year due to COVID 19 restrictions. Canvassing will begin on the 29th of October, the official kick-off day for the campaign, and continue through November 10.
4. There are numerous other activities where we need your help during this time, such as phone committee, runners, colour party, speakers for remembrance ceremonies around the community, and more during "POPPY WEEK"
Note: Proper COVID rules, social distancing etc will be in effect throughout the campaign.
All volunteers must show proof of vaccination.
If you would like to get involved, we would love to put you to work for this most important week for our LEGION! Please contact 2021 Poppy Chairman, Fern Taillefer, or leave a call back message for one of the other Committee members listed below.
