St. Clair Catholic will continue to support the annual Royal Canadian Legion Poppy fundraisers this year. In the past, Legion branches across the district have dropped off poppies and cash collection boxes at schools and at the Catholic Education Centre in Wallaceburg. However, as a result of precautions due to COVID-19, cash donations are not currently being accepted in schools and Board offices.
“In an effort to continue to support the work of our friends at the Legion branches across the district, we will be accepting donations this year through School Cash Online,” says Deb Crawford, Director of Education. “School Cash Online is a simple and convenient way to make a donation and it does not require our staff to handle cash.”
The donated funds will be held at the schools and each school will write a cheque to their local Legion branch after November 11.
Schools will distribute poppies in a manner that minimizes the handling of the poppies, avoids close contact between individuals and observes proper hand hygiene, as advised by Public Health Ontario.
“We thank all of our students, families and staff for their donations as we try, where possible, to support our community partners, who are also impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Mrs. Crawford.
