Support those impacted by flooding in Ottawa

Publish date: Wednesday, June 26, 2019 update

Since the spring, residents in communities across Eastern Ontario have been battling rising waters along the Ottawa River. Flooding has caused widespread damage to homes, it has isolated the community’s most vulnerable, and in many cases has forced families to abandon their homes.

In response, AMAPCEO activists Sarah Hoy and Ray Parisien reached out to AMAPCEO to help organize a fundraiser for their neighbours. AMAPCEO kicked off the campaign by donating $500 to flooding-related initiatives at the United Way, and we are encouraging you to help, too! When you donate through this special link, your donation will have twice the impact, as it will be matched by other United Way donors. Please donate today!
