Extending a Helping Hand - Helping Those in Need

CEFO's Emergency Response Fund donates funds to families within the Ottawa Catholic School Board who are experiencing a financial crisis. This assistance includes funds for food, clothing, medical supplies, transportation, and utility bills, to name but a few.
