Hello and welcome. We are a small group of individuals who just want to bring the joy and warmth of good food in the winter holiday season to families that may not be able to do it themselves.
This is our second year fundraising to create food baskets. Last year we registered in the Basket Brigade from the Anthony Robbins Foundation and raised $2100 simply through word-of-mouth, and gave away baskets of healthy food, bringing smiles to so many families, including lots of little children.
We’re at it again this year, and we hope to give even more. We have therefore pledged to help Sophia House, a 90+ bed facility which helps to settle refugees and distraught families in Ottawa, including assistance finding a job.
You can get more information about Sophia House at: http://connectingottawa.com/resource/maison-sophia-house.
Basket Brigade Ottawa sincerely thanks you for your contribution and your heartfelt loving thoughts in support of these families who will one day become contributing and confident citizens of this society.
