Successful Event in Ottawa

May 12, 2012

Our team in Ottawa have been working with the Gloucester Emergency Food Cupboard for a number of years. The GEFC helps feed 500 families in the Gloucester area of Ottawa (approximately 1800 adults and children). The relationship was started by POD Leader Tony Mili providing free IT support and has seen us participate with the GEFC in the Santa Claus parade for the last 5 years. During the setup at last years parade our team got into a discussion about holding a ‘Fill the Beetle…Feed the People’ event on their behalf. At their request we waited until now but today saw the Ottawa Pod hold their first Ottawa ‘Fill the Beetle…Feed the People’ in a long time. The day was a great success and we certainly managed to fill the Beetle! On top of all the food donations we also collected approximately $180 in cash donations. A big thanks goes to eNerds Len Cobb, Fred Farid, Stephen Kidd, Robert Goliss and Tony Mil for helping make this day a success!
