Poppy campaign's help grows

 From left to right, Bonnie Moon, the Swift Current Legion's poppy chairperson, stands with Nursing Unit Coordinator Brenda Fleury and Continuing Care Assistant Alicia Smith at the bariatric bed in Clover House, Feb. 7. Clover House is a multi-purpose house at The Meadows long-term care facility that provides respite and convalescent care as well as palliative care.

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 56 in Swift Current used a portion of the proceeds from the 2019 poppy campaign to purchase a bariatric bed for Clover House at The Meadows long-term care facility and three Broda chairs for the Cypress House retirement and care home.

The 2019 poppy campaign raised a total of $30,352 and the funds are used in various ways to assist veterans and their families, including the purchase of medical equipment.
