2018 Poppy Fund Campaign
Audit Report

Once again, a number of dedicated volunteers from the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 36 Dundas, as well as volunteers from our community have made up Poppy boxes and delivered them to stores to display.  At the same time, they have given up their time to stand and take donations from people in Dundas, Ancaster, Westdale and the Meadowlands to support our charity.  

Each year we’re asked where this money goes and I feel because of their generosity, they should be informed.  The following are the areas that the money we collected were given during the period from October 1st, 2017 to September 30th, 2018. This is the most recent year that we have completed.

Our income for the year totaled $82,926.05

Cost of supplies                               $16,813.61

Support of local Sea, Army, Air cadet groups   $ 9,000.00

Juravinski Cancer Clinic                       $15,000.00

St. Joseph’s Villa                             $15,000.00

Belec University Scholarship Bursaries         $ 2,000.00

Salvation Army (Food Bank & Drop-In)           $ 4,000.00

Support of Veterans                            $ 9,999.20

Starting on December 14th, 2018 - 192 poinsettia plants were delivered to Veterans and/or widows who reside in retirement and nursing homes.  Needless to say, they enjoyed being remembered at this time of year.

Our total expenditures during this period totaled $81,535.21
