OSCA Breakfast with Santa 2013

DSC02297-SNOWOn December 15th OSCA hosted our second annual ‘Breakfast with Santa’. This was a simple event with no advertising, outside promotion or sales of items, and no entrance fee asked. It is our way to open our doors and invite the community to gather together, enjoy a pancake breakfast, and a short visit from Santa. It’s also a way for us to support our local Ottawa Food Bank. This year we also asked for donations for our neighbours Empathy House.


Donations Needed for Empathy House in Old Ottawa South

OSCA is collecting holiday donations for Empathy House, a long-term residential treatment facility for women located in our neighbourhood of Old Ottawa South. Please feel free to drop off any of the following items at the Old Firehall in the Empathy House Donation Box in the entrance of the OSCA community centre.

Cardboard Challenge 2013

cardboard-challenge-2013-1On Saturday October 5th my family and I arrived at the Firehall Community Centre with two cereal boxes. We left with a couple of beautifully-decorated tote bags and – more impressive, but arguably less practical – one giant silver robot costume. It was magic.
