Ottawa City Firefighters collect 33,000 items!

December 9th was the Annual City of Ottawa Firefighter’s Food Drive. The Firefighters were picking up food donations at local grocery stores and delivering to the Orléans-Cumberland Community Resource Centre (OCCRC) Food bank. Orléans residents were extremely generous. It was an all-day event with lots of kind volunteers from OCCRC and the Kiwanis Club of Orleans helping unpack and sort donations.
