St. Patrick’s Day Parade Totals

Our team and supporters brought out the green in an otherwise grey day!

While the weather for the parade may have been on the drab side, we were happy to be in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade where our volunteers and supporters were decked out in green and in great spirits!

Thank you to the Irish Society of the National Capital Region for once again inviting us to take part, and for encouraging parade-goers to bring donations for the Ottawa Food Bank.

As our float and our volunteers made our way through the parade route, we collected $1,323 and 180 lbs of food from the sidelines! Thank you to everyone who came out with a donation in tow to help people in need in our community.

Thank you to John Fraser, MPP for Ottawa South, for joining our team this year and helping with donation collection, and thank you to all our wonderful volunteers and Wyatt McWilliams for joining us once again. You help us make this day special.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
