2012 Holiday Gift Program

01/15/13

The Children's Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) held its 28th annual Holiday Gift Program. The gift drive is intended to help families currently receiving support from CASO, but whose children remain in the home and whom the financial pressures of the holiday season are overwhelming.

In 2012, CASO received more than 9,000 gifts from over 140 organizations, businesses, schools and individuals of our community. Approximately 10 volunteers donated over 850 hours collecting, sorting and preparing the gifts for pick-up.

Year after year, CASO employees have the opportunity to see firsthand what the communities’ contributions mean to children, youth and families. On behalf of the Society and the Foundation, thank you to all community donors who have given their time, money and commitment.
