The Okotoks Branch Poppy Campaign
Hello fellow Okotokians. We know you are eager to continue supporting our branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. But we are also painfully aware of the restrictions placed on each and every one of us because of COVID-19. So we have added options allowing you to Donate in a completely contactless fashion if you so wish.
Your donations mean so much in our continuing mandate to aid veterans and their families as well as giving back to the Community. (See our Community page for more information).
This year you are able to donate to our Okotoks Branch Poppy Fund by Text or by E-Transfer (Further details below). We will have manned locations at Sobeys, Costco and Walmart, if you do wish to donate in person. Please pass this information to your friends and neighbours who may not be reached by the local news media.
Text to Donate
A person texts: POPPY4OK to 20222. It does not have to be capital letters. There are no spaces between the letters and to be clear, the O’s in POPPY4OK are the letter “O” and not zeros. The donation will be added to the person’s next Cell phone bill. The funds will go directly to the Branch bank account. Tax receipts for donations of $25 or over will be provided to the donor when the Cell Phone Bill is paid.
E-Transfer Donations can be made to www.poppyboxabnwt.com
There is a drop down menu which will have the Okotoks Branch listed. All donations will be deposited daily into our Branch bank account and a tax receipt will be provided automatically for donations $25 and over.
Both of these options are now live.
Please keep safe.
