Welcome to tulip season, friends! It seems like the whole city has come alive in the last week, with the magnolias exploding off their branches and the tulips suddenly coming out of nowhere. We are solidly heading towards a warm, welcoming spring.
Helping With Furniture
In August, United Way East Ontario announced eight new Community Builder Award recipients being honoured for their unwavering support to their communities in these challenging times. Read on to learn about recent recipient Nathalie Maione.
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.
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.
