ECCAO is pleased to continue its tradition by contributing to The Ottawa Mission benevolent work helping the needy in Ottawa.

We are contributing in two ways:

  1. By collecting donations to The Ottawa Mission, and
  2. By volunteering to serve food at the Thanksgiving Day, on Monday, October 9, 2017

This activity is led by Khaled Badawi and Dr. Mervat El-Tair with support from the ECCAO Cultural Director, Nivin Elrafie.

The Ottawa Mission is a shelter for homeless, it serves an average of 1,295 meals every day, and more than double that on holidays – that’s a total of close to 473,000 meals a year.

Here is how you can participate:

1- Donation:
Over the years, our community has been very generous with The Ottawa Mission. We are reaching out to you to support our effort this year by raising funds to The Ottawa Mission. Tax receipts will be issued for donations over $20. To donate, please send a check payable to ‘The Ottawa Mission’ to Khaled Badawi by September 29, 2017. Please email us for his address.

2- Volunteering:
ECCAO has already signed us up for 12 spots confirmed with a request to increase them to 20 spots; the ECCAO team of volunteers will be serving food during the shift from 2:00 to 5:30 PM. All volunteers must be on-site by 1:45 PM.

If you are interested in volunteering, please RVSP by simply replying to this message with: Your Name, Phone # and Email Address, by September 29, 2017. Remember the number is limited, first come.
