++ Action Required: Circulate to employees and consider a Corporate Donation to the Food Bank
Dear CATA friends,
On behalf of CATAAliance, I have recently joined the Ottawa Food Bank's Heroes Fighting Hunger campaign. Its part of engaging Ottawa's High Tech community in supporting important causes. This campaign celebrates the Ottawa Food Bank's 25 years of alleviating hunger in the National Capital Region.
Did you know that every month the Ottawa Food Bank feeds over 43,000 people, and that 40% of those are children?
I know that this campaign will build a better community that will restore that dignity, that energy and that potential to so many currently in need. However, we can't do it alone.
Please join in the fight against community hunger by donating $25 to the Heroes Fighting Hunger campaign and by asking 25 of your own friends and colleagues to do the same.
For every $25 donation, the Ottawa Food Bank can generate $125 worth of food into our very own neighbourhoods.
