OTTAWA, June 25, 2014 /CNW/ - Brian Ballinger, Baseline Rd. Branch
Manager and Jean-Louis Rioux, Regional Manager of National Bank of
Canada, presented Walter Noble, Executive Director of the Children's
Aid Foundation of Ottawa and Javier Clavelo Robinson, Supervisor of
Volunteer Services at the Children's Aid Society of Ottawa with a
cheque for $1,000.
"It takes a lot of good people and organizations working together to
make a difference in our community," stated Walter Noble. National
Bank's donation will be distributed through the Children's Aid
Foundation of Ottawa Cookie Jar program. In the past, funds from this
program have helped provide children, youth and families receiving
support from the Children's Aid Society of Ottawa with financial
assistance for sporting, recreational and cultural programs, as well as
other basic necessities, such as beds or strollers.
"We are very pleased to support the Children's Aid Foundation of Ottawa
as they invest in the lives of children and families in our community,"
said Mr. Ballinger. The National Bank of Canada prides itself on
helping young people achieve their full potential. Through several
initiatives such as the One for Youth program, in 2013, National Bank
has distributed $1 million to 104 organizations across the country. For
this reason and many others, National Bank of Canada was named
Outstanding Enterprise of the Year in Philanthropy by the Association
of Fundraising Professionals.
