Branch 34 (Ferryland) were in desperate need of a new wheelchair ramp for their building and did not have the funds, thus limiting access for some members. When Branch 36 (Mount Pearl) caught wind of this it was quickly voted in by the executive to help out our comrades with the use of our Poppy funds. After going through the proper channels we were able to present a cheque on December 27th, 2023 for $7000!
