The Royal Canadian Legion’s 2020 poppy campaign in Chemainus has received a major boost from 49th Parallel Grocery.
The store has partnered with the campaign with a strong show of support for local Legions.
The first 150 people who donate $50 or more at any till in the store will receive a $20 49th Parallel gift card.
For all you math wizards out there, that means you actually have a net $30 outlay from your $50 donation so that’s pretty good value for your money to help the cause.
“Thank you for supporting our local Legions,” noted Chemainus store manager Paul McGregor in announcing the offer.
Donations of any amount at any till are still most appreciated, of course.
“On behalf of The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 191, our executive and all our membership, we thank 49th Parallel owners, managers and especially Paul McGregor, our store manager in Chemainus, for the generous support of the Poppy Campaign during these very challenging times,” stated Len Lavender, president of Chemainus Branch 191.
“We thank all the Chemainus and area businesses for the very generous financial donations they have made. Thank you to Chemainus Public Market and 49th Parallel for the tables they have provided for collecting donations and providing poppies to the local residents.”
