Recently, National Bank presented Cheryl Burwash, Executive Director of the Children’s Aid Foundation of Ottawa with a cheque for $1000 for their Cookie Jar fund. From allowing a child to participate in an organized sport to providing a highchair for a new mother, this fund is used for those “extra” items or opportunities that families and children in the care of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa may not have the funding for.
The generous donation was part of the Altamira Grant program that benefits children. When National Bank Branch Manager, Brian Ballinger received an email asking for charity submissions for the grant, he knew right away which charity he would propose. “Being an adoptive parent through our local Children’s Aid Society and a volunteer with them, I know how valuable a role they fulfill to the most vulnerable children in our city.”
Thank you to National Bank for making a difference for children in our community!
