Burin le­gion do­nates $3,000 to health care foundation

The Southern Gazette - - SPORTS - BY COLIN FARRELL

Mem­bers of the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion Branch 29 Burin do­nated $3,000 to the Burin Penin­sula Health Care Foundation Oct. 27.

Branch pres­i­dent Shirley Hod­der said the funds came from the le­gion’s an­nual poppy drive.

“The poppy fund is used for the as­sis­tance of vet­er­ans and their fam­i­lies, as well as com­mu­nity en­hance­ment,” she said.

Monies from the fund also go to­wards help­ing the lo­cal cadet move­ments in Burin and Marys­town.

The money do­nated by the le­gion will go to­wards the foundation’s chemo­ther­apy cam­paign for the Burin Penin­sula Health Care Cen­tre.

The or­ga­ni­za­tion has been do­nat­ing to the foundation since 2006 for a to­tal of $12,000.
