Gifts for Good: Here Is How It Works
The OCH Foundation’s Gifts for Good Program provides a unique and special opportunity to give a gift this holiday season that can make a difference to tenants of Ottawa Community Housing; Ottawa’s largest social housing provider. These gifts provide increased opportunities for employment, education and community engagement to individuals who experience barriers and inequities. The gifts offered through this catalogue represent actual items from our programs.
Here’s how the Gifts for Good Catalogue works:
- Click on the gift you wish to purchase. You will be redirected to our Canada Helps page to complete your secure transaction.
- If you are purchasing a gift in the name of a friend or loved one, choose the type of e-card to be delivered to your recipient. You can send a personalized message (optional).
- Complete your transaction (Visa, Mastercard and PayPal)
- You will receive a confirmation email after your purchase, containing your charitable tax receipt.
