Recent donation for OCISO clients: Hand made crocheted hats with matching scarves

We would like to thank Holly Massie for donating these beautiful handmade crocheted hats with matching scarves to OCISO clients! This holiday season is a lot warmer for many of people in need thanks to the generosity of our supporters like Holly!

Holly is one of the founding members of the The Stairwell Carollers, a charitable a cappella chamber choir, and a big OCISO supporter. Many OCISO clients benefitted from colorful and warm hats and scarves that Holly donated last year as well.

We are very grateful for the support to refugees and newcomers to Ottawa!
