Getting Involved at Centretown United Church
A team of volunteers from the Church, Centre 507, and the neighbourhood work from mid-May to October to provide fresh vegetables to augment the meal program at Centre 507. All green thumbs welcome! Click here to see "The Story of the Centretown / Centre 507 Community Garden"
In 1991, we signed a 50 year lease with the Centretown Citizens (Ottawa) Corporation (CCOC) for the construction of affordable housing - a 7 story building with 44 units and on- ground / underground parking.
Partnering with Ottawa Centre Refugee Action (O.C.R.A.) and Carty House, a transition home for refugee women, we sponsor a lady from the Central African Republic.
We deliver nearly 160 hampers containing a holiday meal, groceries and gifts to the community. You can donate or adopt a hamper or volunteer at Christmas time. We welcome your support. Christmas Hamper Project 2017 is now underway! Click on link below to go to website.
During the Christmas and Easter exam periods, we partner with multi-faith groups to provide nourishing snacks for students at Carleton University to ease their stress. Donations of snacks are welcome.

We meet 3-4 times a year. All are welcome to read and discuss a range of genres from memoir to fiction.
