Every day, the Ottawa Mission serves up three warm meals for people in need. Yes, it’s a men’s shelter but the meals are for everyone. No one is turned away. I can personally vouch for that.
The holidays are an extra special time. More love is shown in a wonderful display of charity, kindness, togetherness, cheer. Things that exist permanently within the Mission’s walls but really shine through during Thanksgiving Service. Guests of the Mission are invited to bring their friends and families and have a proper meal served to them.
Volunteers like these big events the most because the warmth kinda stays with you extra long when you’re a part of something so special. It’s difficult to physically become a volunteer on these days because they’re so HOT! But don’t dispair. Help is still needed and you can be a part of the Mission’s Thanksgiving feast on Monday, October 9th.
If haulin’ a bird to the station ain’t your bag...
