Ottawa Chapter - 2023 Caring and Sharing Exchange
November - December 21, 2023
For the past number of years, Landscape Ontario’s Ottawa Chapter has taken the initiative to support our community by teaming up with the Caring and Sharing Exchange Sponsor a Hamper program. The hampers are filled with healthy foods to provide meals for families and individuals in need during the Holiday season. Last year we were able to source food and donations from local businesses that really helped pull the whole community together.
