Normally, throughout the month of May, veterans’ organizations would be out on the streets offering poppies in exchange for donations but this year, the tradition has been brought to a halt by the COVID-190 pandemic. 

Each poppy represents a US serviceman killed in action, and all donations collected from selling the poppies go into the Poppy Fund, which is used to aid veterans, military members, and their families.

This year, veterans in  New Jersey are offering drive-thru poppy service by the Omega Diner, 1337 Route 1, in North Brunswick, New Jersey on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.,at the ShopRite on Renaissance Boulevard on May 20 and 21, and at Quick Chek, 1505 Route 1, and IHOP, 1431 Route 1, also in North Brunswick, reported Central Jersey.com.

National Poppy Day is Friday, May 22nd.
