Poppy Campaign Helping Our Veterans

The poppy campaign is well underway throughout New Brunswick and across Canada.

President of the New Brunswick Royal Canadian Legion Paul Poirier tells CHSJ news a lot of people think the money goes towards the legion, but it's only held in trust by them. He says the money goes directly towards helping veterans and their families, being used for transportation, furnace oil and other needs.

He didn't have specific figures, but says a branch can raise anywhere from $3,000 to $20,000.The campaign ends on November 11th.
