firms filling fridges
Firms Filling Fridges, a new spin on the County of Carleton Law Association’s annual fundraiser, was tremendously successful!

Firms Filling Fridges, an amazingly successful month-long fundraising campaign has raised:


The County of Carleton Law Association and 35 Ottawa law firms came together to fill 380 family fridges. This year their annual food and fundraiser switched gears and moved to an online format for donations using the Ottawa Food Bank’s Peer to Peer online donation pages to compete for the coveted Golden Can award and, of course, another year of bragging rights!

We are thrilled to announce the division winners as follows:

Winning large firm goes to Gowling WLG who raised $12,214.00

Winning medium-firm goes to Soloway Wright LLP who raised $8,905.00

Winning small firm goes to Arbique & Ahde, Associate Lawyers who raised $5,025.00

This year we were honoured to have two government law offices join us. An Honourable Mention goes out to the Office of the Judge Advocate General, National Defence for raising $1,455.00!

We are thrilled with how well the online donation platform has worked for the courthouse food bank drive. It has been fun to see firms and legal departments across the city compete in real-time in our "Golden Can Challenge," and our donation total has completely exceeded our expectations for the campaign. The legal industry has evolved substantially in the past year due to the pandemic and the need to move court matters online, and we were keen to move the courthouse food bank drive, now called Firms Filling Fridges, in this direction as well. We are very happy to see the legal community make such an incredible donation to the Ottawa Food Bank.

Thank you!
