Wellington West Restaurant Initiative
We did it
On 13th January 2021 we successfully raised $6,177 with 78 supporters in 35 days

Money raised will be used to purchase gift cards from Independently owned restaurants on Wellington and sent to frontline staff at TOH.

We have been upset by the enormous amounts of businesses that have been forced to close their doors due to the lack of business during these awful times. As the colder months approach, restaurants will have a harder time attracting customers because it freezes outside and limited seating space. Our vision is to fundraise to buy gift cards from these local restaurants and send them to frontline workers at The Ottawa Hospital. Wellington is home to some of the best restaurants in the city, and we truly believe there is no better way to thank nurses who have been working tirelessly for months than to set them up with an incredible meal for them and their family.  100% of your donation will be used to buy gift cards, which will definitely put a smile on the face of proud frontline workers in your city.

This initiative is entirely student-run but has the full support of TOH and the Wellington West BIA.
