Did you know that each year, Legion members contribute over 600,000 hours to community causes?
Volunteerism is one of The Royal Canadian Legion’s core activities. At its heart, the Legion is a grassroots organization that has its greatest impact through volunteer, community-based activities. Legionnaires comprise one of the largest volunteer bases in the country, committing millions of volunteer hours each year.
Through its local Branches and members, the Legion raises funds and supports essential services for those in need, and responds to the unique needs of their community. Our work at the community level includes outreach and assistance programs for Veterans and their families, fundraising to support essential community services, offering supports for seniors and families in need, organizing commemorative ceremonies and promoting Remembrance, and more. In times of local or regional crisis, Legion Branches and Legionnaires are there to support those who have been adversely affected by an emergency.
There are many ways to get involved and have a direct impact on your community. Contact your local Branch to find out more.
