Legion Donates to Tornado Fund

Goderich | by Peter Jackson  

Goderich Legion will donate $18,500 to the Disaster Relief Fund.


On this last day to apply for assistance from the Goderich and Area Disaster Relief Fund the local Royal Canadian Legion branch has come through in a big way.

Branch 109 is donating $18,500 to the fund.

Branch President Paul Thorne says the money was raised through a recent day-long concert featuring local area musicians.

Admission to the event was through free-will donations and the day also featured silent and live auctions.

Thorne is grateful to those who attended the concert and showed such generosity.

All funds donated to the Goderich and Area Disaster Relief Fund are matched on a two-to-one basis by the province.

Money raised through the Legion event will increase to more than 55-thousand dollars once the ODRAP funds kick in.

The donation deadline is December 1st.
