Ottawa’s Holiday Helpers showed beautiful generosity on December 7th


10th Annual Food Drive a Success

With three locations for people  to drop off donations (Walmart Innes, Walmart Baseline, and CTV Morning Live headquarters), the community stopped by to show support from the Ottawa Food Bank from 6 straight through until 10 a.m.

As the trucks and money jars started to fill, all involved could tell this was a special day.

From all three donation locations, the community donated a very generous
$129,064 and 12,101 lbs of food!

For highlights of the donations made throughout the CTV Morning Live broadcast, check out the montage created of the special show.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by and donated in an effort to help us provide for 41,500 people every month, through our network of 112 community food programs. The way the community came together during this event and showed incredible generosity is truly touching.

A heartfelt THANK YOU to the entire team at CTV Morning Live for all the hard work that goes into this wonderful event. Your continued support makes an incredible difference in the lives of so many families and individuals in our city.

Thank you to Home Hardware and Bayshore Shopping Centre for being incredible sponsors of the event, and helping us unload our trucks and begin the process of sorting through all the donations.
