A Season for Giving

As Christmas approaches and you prepare for joyous celebrations with your family and friends, we ask that you remember Ottawa Friendship House in your holiday plans.

What better way to celebrate the season than by sharing what you have with neighbors who are in need of assistance to meet their basic needs? Your generosity will help us continue to improve the quality of life for men and women with disabilities.

Please, won’t you decide to make a difference today?
