Each year, By-Town Chapter chooses a worthy cause to raise funds for. In the past, we have donated $1,000 each to the Hospice at May Court, Ottawa’s Seven Women’s Shelters, and Rogers House. Funds were raised at chapter events like the annual golf tournament and with the kind donation of numerous items for our auction (see our website for a list of this year’s contributors and for pictures of this event). Members also contribute generously at our monthly luncheons.
In 2010, we committed to raising $1,000 for the Canada Post Foundation for Mental Health. At this time, we are very close to meeting our target.
If you have ideas or suggestions for our next cause of choice, please let us know as soon as possible.
