Successful first with Dads for Diapers event

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Thank you to all who supported our inaugural Dads for Diapers event!

At the Ottawa Food Bank, we split our food and supply purchases up into categories. Baby items are in a category all their own – these are our Baby Basics. They continue to be the only category where every single item sees an increase in price year over year.

What’s more, diapers are one of the only items where we are not able to leverage volume discounts. They are expensive for us – but they are worth every dollar spent as we know receiving these supplies makes a huge difference in the lives of struggling parents and their babies.

Thanks to the incredible support of everyone who attended Dads for Diapers and bid on auction items, the evening raised $7,150 in support of our Baby Basics Program.

We appreciate all who attended. By joining us you made a difference. You helped a family. 35% of people who visit a food program in Ottawa have children. On behalf of them, we thank you.

Thank you to MeNa Restaurant for being an incredible host and partner. You provided amazing food, drink, and atmosphere that truly helped set the tone of the evening.

Thank you to Steve Warne and TSN 1200 for being our MC and media sponsor for the evening.

Thank you to our sponsors, including CIBC Wood Gundy’s Ray Dubeau, Logan Katz LLP Chartered Professional Accountants, Terlin Construction Ltd, LaZBoy (Ottawa area), Palladium Insurance, Patrick Dion Consulting Inc, and Taligent Consulting Inc. Your above and beyond support did not go unnoticed.

After the enthusiasm of this first event, we look forward to the next one and hope to see you there.
