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.
Christmas Hamper Project
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.
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.
Centretown Book Club
We meet 3-4 times a year. All are welcome to read and discuss a range of genres from memoir to fiction.
