On December 18th, 19th, and 20th, the HW staff joined members of the Kiwanis Club in packing over 25,000 pounds of food into hampers for delivery to those in need just before Christmas. Every year the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa organizes this initiative, and arranges for donations of boxes, and food and labour as well as purchasing over $18,000 of food to be distributed to 175 families in the Ottawa area. 600 boxes were built, packed and sealed by Friday night. On Saturday morning, turkeys and other perishables were added before the hampers were delivered, just in time for the holidays!
The partners and staff at Hendry Warren wish everyone Happy Holidays and a prosperous New Year!
