Bundle of Hope: Help Ottawa's Struggling Families
Families served by the Vanier Community Services Centre, through the Vanier Social Pediatric Hub, continue to receive services despite ongoing COVID-19 disruptions and challenges.
Please consider giving these children and youth, and their families, a ‘Bundle of Hope’.
Donations will be used to purchase age-appropriate items for the children and youth, and a grocery card for the parents. The bundles are packaged and delivered safely to each of the families.
