A big thanks to you and your group of student and parent volunteers for the lunch donations today!
We serve an average of 1307 meals every day, so our kitchen is always busy. Having you help out the way you do saves our kitchen staff so much time, and makes things much nicer for our clients.
On behalf of all The Mission staff and clients, thank you for your support!
Tomorrow is Double Lunch Day for the Ottawa Mission. Please send an extra lunch if you can. They are very appreciated!
