As you are aware, the United Way/Centraide of Ottawa-Carleton has launched its 2016 Campaign to support those in need in the Ottawa area. United Way’s theme for 2016 is “Together, we are possibility”. United Way/Centraide supports many programs in over 100 member agencies. This year, the staff and students of St. Clare school are called to make a conscious decision in taking an active part in the community by continuing to care for those in need. This supports our Board’s theme, “Sent to be the Good News.” We have designated three days, October 21, 28 and Nov. 4, to raise money for our neighbours from the Ottawa area who are in need. Although we ask that students donate a loonie or a toonie for our special days, they can donate anything they can afford to participate in these activities. Students can do chores in order to earn money to donate to this cause.
