Celebrating a Heartfelt ThankfulThursday: Unveiling Our Collective Impact

Dear Ottawa,

We’re overwhelmed with gratitude as we share the incredible outcome of our GivingTuesday initiative!

Your unwavering support and generosity have made a remarkable impact on our mission to fill 2,000 fridges and ensure no family goes hungry this holiday season and beyond.

Thanks to all of your heartfelt contributions, we soared past our initial goal, raising a staggering total of $745,005.18! This monumental achievement goes far beyond numbers; it signifies the collective power of kindness and compassion within our community.

The generosity didn’t stop there. Thanks to the remarkable matching gift challenge from Empire Company Limited, every donation on GivingTuesday was matched, up to $15,000, doubling the impact of your support. Your donations became a lifeline for countless families, filling 2,217 fridges with essential nourishment during these challenging times.

We extend our sincerest gratitude to each person who donated, shared our cause, and joined hands in making a difference. Your support doesn’t just fill fridges; it fills hearts with hope, warmth, and a sense of unity that truly defines the spirit of this season.

While we celebrate this incredible milestone, our commitment to supporting families in need continues. Together, we’ll persist in creating a food-secure community where no one ever has to worry about putting food on their table.

Thank you for being the heart of this initiative. Stay tuned for further updates and stories of impact in the coming weeks as we strive to build a stronger, more compassionate community together.

With heartfelt appreciation,
Ottawa Food Bank
