Do you know an Ottawa group or business that is making our city a better place? Nominations for the 2nd Ottawa Social Impact Awards are now open.
Helping With Furniture
The premise of Helping With Furniture, a registered charity, is brilliantly simple. They take donated and discarded furniture and other items, including tables, chairs, linens, lamps, mirrors, chests of drawers, and all manner of other items, and deliver them to the homes of refugees, new immigrants, and low-income families in the Ottawa area, who otherwise lack the money or ability to get such furnishings.
Ottawa is home to a multitude of social enterprises and community initiatives that are working hard to grow and nurture our city.
