OTTAWA, Sept. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - The Ottawa Mission is preparing to serve
an estimated 2,200 meals to those who are homeless, poor or alone at a special
Thanksgiving Dinner next month.
Providing this special meal wouldn't be possible without generous
donations from the community. Once again this fall, The Ottawa Mission is
asking the community to fill up it's freezers with donations of large, frozen
turkeys, preferably between 20-25 lbs.
It takes roughly 80 of these large turkeys to feed everyone at the
special community meal, which translates into almost a ton of turkey!
The frozen turkey donations can be dropped off at The Ottawa Mission,
located at 35 Waller St., or arrangements can be made to pick them up by
The Mission's Thanksgiving Dinner will take place on Monday, October 13th
from 11:30 - 5:00 p.m.
