It’s been another record-setting year for the Ottawa Catholic School Board’s United Way campaign. OCSB employees raised $533,362.93, with $404,981.52 being directed to the Catholic Education Foundation of Ottawa. We also met our goal of 80% participation among staff for the second year in a row. The generosity of the staff in this school district is both amazing and inspiring.
At the Announcement Ceremony on Friday, December 8, 2017, central OCSB staff witnessed the unveiling of the total funds raised with the help of seven very special guests from St. George, Dr. F.J. McDonald, St. Emily, and St. Joseph Schools. We had the numbers a little mixed up at first, but with the help of the students and some “Price Is Right” theme music, we were able to get all of the numbers in order for the audience.
