The 2017 Ottawa Courthouse Food Bank Drive – A Huge Thank You!
March 27, 2017
The CCLA and the Ottawa Food Bank would like to express a huge thank you to everyone who donated during our recent Ottawa Courthouse Food Bank drive!
Every morning for a week, dedicated members from Ottawa’s law firms & legal community spent time in the lobby of the courthouse to accept donations for the Ottawa Food Bank, this year they also made donations online. As well various offices in the Courthouse also set up their own individual collection points.
In addition to this, a number of law firms across the city were encouraged to do an internal “friendly firm competition” food drive as well! This year’s event truly went above and beyond.
Everyone’s diligence and participation paid off, as this year’s food drive brought in $16,674 and 1,119 lbs. of food!
This is a record breaking year for the Courthouse food bank drive!
Thank you to everyone who donated and to everyone who participated in the food drive for your continued commitment over the years. Your dedication means so much to the Ottawa Food Bank and is felt throughout our community as you help the Food Bank by providing for more than 41,500 people every month.
