Seasons is proudly home to many Veterans. We honour those who served our country during times of war, dispute and peace. Together, we remember their important stories so the legacy of our Veterans may live on forever.
We created the Pennies for Poppies campaign to honour the Veterans who live at Seasons Retirement Communities. Every November since 2016, Seasons collects pocket change from staff, families, community members and residents to support its local Royal Canadian Legion.
“Seasons donates to the Royal Canadian Legions because we appreciate the important work they do to help aging Veterans. The Legion is an important community resource in the cities and towns where we operate retirement homes,” says LeighAnne Voll, COO, Seasons Retirement Communities.
Paper poppies with donors’ names are also posted in each Seasons Retirement Community to create a Remembrance Day display. Additionally, Seasons team members ‘plant’ hundreds of paper poppies in our gardens to create a visual display of commitment to honour the brave women and men who served our country.
The Royal Canadian Legion explains that donations to the Legion Poppy Fund directly support Veterans, including the Canadian Armed Forces, RCMP and their families who are in need of services.
In respect of Veterans who stood up for the rights we enjoy today, Seasons Retirement Communities created a video to recognize and thank the men and women who fought for our freedom.
