Every year on November 11, Canadians pause in a silent moment of remembrance for the people who have served and continue to serve our country during times of war, conflict and peace.
This year the OTIP Group of Companies (OGC) will be honouring those who have served and continue to serve our country with a $5,000 donation to the National Poppy Trust Fund.
As a branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, the National Poppy Trust Fund provides important care and support to veterans and their families. Donations to this fund are used to provide essential services, such as mental health resources, financial support for housing, food, clothing, medication, and more.
OGC recognizes those who served and continue to serve by honouring their service, courage and sacrifice.
