Six west-end Ottawa United churches are coordinating efforts to raise money for Hospice Care Ottawa, specifically to support the construction of the Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice – Kanata. The participating churches are Bells Corner United, Glen Cairn United, Kanata United, Stittsville United, St. Paul’s United (Carp), and St. Paul’s United (Richmond).
The goal of this campaign is to jointly raise at least $50,000 for Hospice Care Ottawa with fundraising events wrapping up by the end of March 2018. All money raised will be directed to fund a room in Hein House which will help to highlight the importance of community involvement in hospice programs and operations.
Stittsville United will be hosting a Bridge / Euchre / Lunch Fundraising Event on Thursday, October 12. The event will start at 11:00 a.m. with coffee and muffins. Cost for the day is $20 per person. If you would like more information, or would like to play cards please phone the church office at 613-836-4962 to reserve a space. All are welcome to enjoy a day of lunch, cards, and fellowship.
