The 2019 Ottawa Courthouse Food Bank Drive – The Results are In!

March 27, 2019  

The CCLA and the Ottawa Food Bank would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who made a donation during the 2019 Courthouse Food Bank Drive!

From volunteering at the Courthouse every morning to collect donations, to individual online donations, and our exciting Golden Can Challenge in the law firms, the Ottawa legal community pulled together to make one outstanding donation!

We are very happy to announce that this year’s food drive brought in $25,483 and 737 pounds of food!

Thank you to everyone who donated and to everyone who participated in the food drive!

We'd also like to extend a special thank you to Mitch Kitagawa (Kelly Santini LLP)! Mitch coordinated our Golden Can Challenge, encouraging firms from across the city to compete for biggest donations. We're excited to announce that Gowling WLG is this year's winner! Congratulations also to our second and third place teams - Kelly Santini and Soloway Wright!

We'd also like to thank again our wonderful on-site volunteers:

- Khalid Elgazzar & Friends
- Nirman’s Law
- Tierney Stauffer LLP
- Caza Saikaley LLP
- Lisa Sharp & Friends from the Family Bar
