Poppy Campaign 2020

This year’s official Poppy Campaign ran from October 30, 2020 to November 11, 2020. Due to the pandemic, the 2020 Poppy Campaign is much more limited in scope.  The vast majority of our traditional distribution sites are operating remotely and all of the events we would normally be represented at have been cancelled.  So with a few exceptions, most of our poppies this year were mailed to individuals who directly requested them.

To accommodate the virtual nature of so many of our activities in 2020, we launched a “Show Us Your #BayAreaPoppy” campaign that had limited success.  Some of the pictures that we were able to collect from the campaign included…

Once again our partners at Augie’s Montreal Deli in Berkeley were one of our main distribution sites (and one of the few open to the public this year).

Our friends at the Canadian Consulate General in San Francisco got involved.

Due to the pandemic, some of our members and ex-pats made their own poppies this year.

One of our members or an ex-pat Canadian made her extra poppies to friends, neighbours, and others who wanted to pop by.

Finally, this poppy was spotted in the Monterey area.
