Thank you Ottawa

Each year during the holiday season, CBC Ottawa hosts Project Give, a special day of storytelling and charitable giving in support of the Ottawa Food Bank.

Ottawa gives generously to support CBC Ottawa's Project Give

Once again, Ottawa has shown kindness and generosity in the face of adversity. 

On Friday, Dec. 11, CBC Ottawa hosted Project Give, its annual charity drive in support of the Ottawa Food Bank. The day began with special programming on 91.5FM with Ottawa Morning and All in a Day, and rounded out with TV broadcasts, CBC Ottawa News at 6 and Late Night. 

Throughout the day, we met the people who are sharing food—and acts of kindness—when it matters more than ever. There was live music, kindness calls to deserving listeners from notable Canadians, zoom drop ins and get togethers, music mashups with local artists, an overwhelming demand for CBC Ottawa Kindness Calendar and much more. 

Altogether, Ottawa donated $282,498.94 to help the Ottawa Food Bank. 

Thank you Ottawa.
