The Trusted Regina team is thrilled to announce a new category in 2023- Trusted Regina NON-PROFITS! This is such a good fit for us, as we have always had a strong community focus. Trusted was proud to be recognized as the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce ABEX Award for Community recipient in 2017. In 2023, we felt it was time to extend the love, and we are revealing the second of our three Trusted Regina Non-profits. We are excited to announce that Regina Legion Branch 001 is our second Trusted Regina non-profit partner.
A Long History Of Supporting Veterans
In 1926, history was made when the Regina Legion Branch was issued its charter, marking it as the very first branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. Nestled at 1820 Cornwall Street, this historical institution has served as a pillar of support and a home away from home for our nation's heroes. Today, we proudly welcome Regina Legion Branch 001 to the Trusted Regina community as a Trusted Regina Non-profit, recognizing their invaluable contributions to our society.
Trusted Regina Lending A Helping Hand Where It Is Truly Needed
The past few years have been exceptionally challenging for the Regina Legion, as the global pandemic disrupted their operations and gatherings. Coupled with an aging demographic, regaining past membership numbers, volunteers, and sponsors has proven to be an uphill battle. Nevertheless, the Regina Legion Branch 001 membership remains unwavering in its dedication to its mission.
The Royal Canadian Legion was founded by Veterans for Veterans, and the Regina Legion continues to passionately advocate for the care and benefits of all who have served, regardless of when or where they served. This dedication extends to the currently serving Canadian Armed Forces, RCMP, and their families. The Regina Legion offers them representation and assistance, and access to these crucial services is provided at no cost, whether or not individuals are Legion members.
Legion Branches serve as the heart of communities across Canada, providing one of the largest volunteer bases in the nation. With 1,350 Branches spread from coast to coast, Legion members are pivotal in offering local services and support that contribute to building a stronger Canada. Their multifaceted efforts include assisting local Veterans, supporting seniors, initiating youth sports programs, fundraising, volunteering to aid those in need, and providing a welcoming space for gatherings, fun, and celebration. In essence, Legionnaires offer indispensable services within their communities.
The Trusted Regina team and our community stand alongside the Regina Legion Branch 001. We hope to provide support and increase community engagement and awareness that will, in time, help pave the way for their future growth and revitalization. Exciting developments are underway, such as the newly renovated event space, grants to get them back on track, and soon the re-opening of their museum; if you have not yet had the chance to witness the stunning interior of their building on Cornwall Street, prepare to be amazed by its historical significance and beauty.
As Trusted Regina welcomes the members of Regina Legion Branch 001 to our community, we also extend our heartfelt gratitude for their unwavering commitment to our Veterans and the broader community. The Legion has been an essential part of our country's history and is vital in shaping our future. Together, we can continue to ensure that the legacy of service, sacrifice, and support lives on.
Regina, help us help Regina Legion Branch 001 go from surviving to thriving. Their work is too important, and to do it well, they need community support!
