EWC 2016 Christmas Campaign
The holiday season is quickly approaching and, as part of our annual tradition, Encounters with Canada is helping needy generosity to help give four families, with young children, a helping hand - and a families in our community. Thus, once again, we are appealing to your very Merry Christmas!
If you wish to participate in our 2016 Christmas campaign, we kindly ask that you bring or send all donations to the Terry Fox Canadian Youth Centre – 1805 De Gaspé Avenue, Ottawa - before Tuesday, December 20, 2016, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
There is a total of 12 children between the ages of 4 and 14 in these families. EWC Director General Linda Brunet, will personally deliver all donations to each family on December 22, 2016.
On behalf of the families, the Encounters with Canada team and myself, we thank you for your generosity and your community spirit.
Our very best wishes for a wonderful holiday season!
In 2015 EWC raised more than $2,580 and enough food items, toys and other articles to help four families in need!
