Dear Community Members,
NCRTA is holding its sixth annual food drive from November 22, 2014 to December 14, 2014 to benefit the Ottawa Food Bank. It is hard to imagine nearly 50,000 people, of which about 18,000 are children, depend on the Ottawa food bank for their daily meals. This is a great opportunity to help feed the hungry in Ottawa and we encourage you to join in our efforts.
Donations can be in the form of cash or non-perishable items. Tax receipt will be provided by the Ottawa Food Bank for donations over $20.00.
NCRTA would like to
thank all organizations and individuals who participated and generously
contributed to NCRTA food-drives in the past.
Ottawa Food Bank requests for the donation of mainly non-perishable food items such as 'canned meats', 'canned vegetables', 'cereal', 'rice', etc as they are easier to store and deliever to feed the hungry.
