The CTV Morning Live Holiday Helpers Food Drive was a success
With donation drop-off locations at both 87 George (CTV Morning Live headquarters) and 1317 Michael Street (Ottawa Food Bank headquarters), the community showed up in droves to make their contribution to the Holiday Helpers Food Drive.
For highlights of the donations made on December 1st, check out the CTV Morning Live donation montage!
Collectively, the community donated an impressive
7,100 lbs. of food and $105,940!
On December 2nd, the Scouts worked hard to empty and sort the food from the packed POD to help us get it out into the community as fast as possible. Thank you to PODS for once again storing and delivering all these donations. Your services are amazing and appreciated.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by and donated in an effort to help us provide for the over 41,500 people in Ottawa who rely on emergency food support. Your generosity means more than you know to the people in need in our city.
Also, a big thank you to CTV Morning Live, and everyone at Bell Media here in Ottawa, for all the hard work that went into this wonderful initiative. Your continued support of the Ottawa Food Bank makes is big difference in our community.
Watch as the final numbers are revealed on CTV Morning Live.
