Local Edmonton Moving company – Matco Moving Solutions steps up to help the Kingsway Legion (Branch 175) keep a “Roof over their Heads”.
Matco heard of the challenges Legion was facing from the COVID 19 pandemic and the launch of their Go Fund Me campaign from local news station CTV News Edmonton back in February. The Legion was hopeful that the community would step up to help with their mortgage, fix the roof and keep the doors open.
Matco met with Ronald Willis, past President & financial committee chair of the Kingsway Legion to see how we could help.
“As an organization who services the moves of Federal Government employees, like military members and retirees, we felt a responsibility to help out the Legion and Canada’s veterans,” said Leon Johnson, corporate, commercial & international sales manager of Matco Moving Solutions.

As a result, Matco launched a local campaign to donate 5% of local moving sales for April & May to the branch. Leon Johnson & Mark Stables presented a cheque amounting to $2000 to Ron Willis at the Kingsway Legion, on Saturday, June 4th, 2022 during their fundraiser event with a dinner and comic show with over 120 attendees for a wonderful night of laughs and entertainment.
As of June 16th, the Kingsway Legion has raised over $63,000 on their Go Fund Me campaign and has received a motion from the City of Edmonton to credit their taxes and penalties.
We are extremely happy to hear that the Kingsway Legion has met its goal and is no longer at risk of closing its doors.
