We did it again! The Ottawa Catholic School Board’s (OCSB) United Way campaign has had another successful year with OCSB employees raising $508,598, with $379,035 being directed to the Catholic Education Foundation of Ottawa (CEFO). The generosity of the staff in this school district is both amazing and inspiring.
Inspired by the book “Have You Filled a Bucket Today?” the “Fill a Bucket” theme for this year’s campaign was well received and took on a life of its own. Shiny red buckets were proudly and effectively displayed on raffle tables, special lunch tables….anywhere staff could see them to remind them how good it feels to fill the bucket for someone in need. The generous employees of the OCSB really connected with this message. They understood that while they may not know exactly how their donation will change a life, they know that it will.read more
