LETTER: Legion has rules for collecting

Anyone seeking donations will have an official Legion letter

Editor,

At this time of year, when many local businesses and their owners are inundated with requests for donations, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #94 would like to thank all who have assisted us in the past and we look forward to your continued support in the future.

The Quesnel Legion Branch #94 have some very simple rules to protect us, but more importantly, local businesses.

Firstly, any authorized member approaching businesses for donations will have with them a hand-signed, original letter on Legion letterhead (not photocopied).

This person will have with them any pertinent information regarding what they are collecting for.

Furthermore, any prospective donor has the right to call the Legion office any time during office hours (Tuesday through Friday) to confirm the request.

We sincerely hope this will avoid any confusion and, again, thank you for assisting the Royal Canadian Legion #94 with our work.

Doug Carey

Legion second vice-president
