Store displayed donation containers

I went to Dollarama and asked the manager why they don’t support the Legion Poppy Drive.

Dear Editor:

After reading John Dorn’s letter, Store did not display poppy tray, I went to Dollarama and asked the manager why they don’t support the Legion Poppy Drive.

I was told it is Dollarama’s policy.

I then went to Your Dollar Store and More and did not have to ask. Sitting on the check out counter was the Legion poppy tray.

Also on the counter were two cans for donations to BCSPCA and Critteraid.

These are only a few of the numerous events and fund raisers that Allan and Catherine support to make Summerland a better place to live.

According to Dollarama’s website there are now 900 stores in Canada. Also on their website they make the following statement. “We seek to enhance shareholder value not only through exceptional business performance and practices, but also through responsible and effective communication.”

I have to agree you have effectively communicated to all veterans across Canada. You don’t care about the sacrifices they have made.

I will not shop at Dollarama. How about you?
