Bringing Awareness to Poverty
We believe it is important to bring awareness to issues such as poverty in our community. Ending poverty is the first of the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs).
We want to hear your voice about these topics. Get in touch with us through our website or call us at 613-354-7333.
