Before the Christmas break, long-time supporters EllisDon held BBQs for their trades on site for $5.00 a plate, had 50/50 draws at most of their sites, held bake sales, and also auctioned off Christmas baskets.
This fundraising initiative is an annual thing for the organizations, and during this time, everyone is always so wonderful and generous as they knew the money was going to be donated to the Ottawa Food Bank.
The result of this generosity, and innovation in fundraising, was an amazing $6,743! EllisDon has taken this one step further and stated that their Ottawa office will match this donation in 2014! Wow!
Thank you very much for your support and generosity, EllisDon. Your donation will go a long way to help people in need of hunger relief in Ottawa.
