Postcards for Peace
In lieu of Remembrance Day, the RRC Students’ Association is holding a special event to give those at RRC Polytech the opportunity to write cards to local Veterans..
This event is in participation with Postcards for Peace, an initiative for youth, young adults, and adults to send postcards and express messages of thanks to those who served Canada in times of war, military conflict and peace or to still-serving Canadian Armed Forces members. This activity allows us to actively remember the sacrifices and achievements of Canadian Veterans.
Fill out the submission form below, and a representative from the Students’ Association will mail out a postcard for you.
We ask that you keep custom messages short and respectful.
By keeping the letter simple and with a positive message, any service member will be delighted to receive a heartwarming letter from you.
This form is currently closed for submissions.
