Concerts and Food Drives, December 2018: The Food Centre was fortunate to benefit from several fundraising events in December. On the 5th, Thirteen Strings’ Candlelight Christmas concert raised over $1,400 for the Food Centre. On the 6th, St. Giles Presbyterian Church hosted the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa’ s annual concert which raised $1,474 and a truck- load of food for our Centre. On the 10th, a special concert organized by Knox Presbyterian Church, Carols for Organ, Choir and You, raised $1,700.
As well, our Food Drive on December 9h and 10 at McKeen Metro Glebe raised $3,000 in cash and food products. We’re very grateful for all these events and the volunteers who made them possible!
