Nelson Legion Branch 51 receives COVID relief funds

The Nelson Legion Branch 51 is extremely grateful after Kootenay Columbia MP Rob Morrison presented President Bill Andreaschuk with a cheque for $10,000 for support during COVID-19.

The funds, recently presented by MP Morrison at the Nelson Legion on Stanley Street, are part of the COVID-19 relief package that will be used by most Royal Canadian Legions across Canada which are suffering to make ends meet during the pandemic.

The Nelson Legion Branch 51 will use the funds to offset rent, utilities, wages and supplies.

“We (Nelson Legion Branch 51) are very grateful for the support and as always will use these funds wisely,” Andreaschuk said.
