This past year, our coffeehouses supported over 700 neighbourhood organizations with over 950 donations, including in-kind donations of coffee, tea, gift baskets and gift cards.
We are proud to be able to support so many local groups and we’ve highlighted just a few here that reflect the power of community and diversity of events that makes Ottawa so special.
Ottawa International Animation Festival
Each September, we get excited about the Ottawa International Animation Festival which presents cutting edge of animation from around the world. This year saw entries submitted from more than 90 countries.
CARE Canada - Walk in Her Shoes
In March were happy to support Ottawa's Walk In Her Shoes campaign with coffee for volunteers and the walkers! Over 500 people joined in to raised funds in support of CARE Canada's Healthy Moms, Healthy Babies campaign combatting malnutrition across Zambia, Mozambique, and Malawi.
Ottawa International Writers Festival
Shepherds of Good Hope
In November, we raised $5,846 for Shepherds of Good Hope through our seasonal fundraiser. Customers and staff gave generously to support SOGC programs for housing, shelters, addiction services, meals that help people find their way to hope.
