Norah Marsh and David McMahon’s Wedding Wishes
Norah and David believe in the power of children. They hold the key to our future and many do not get the opportunity they deserve to excel because of limitations beyond their control.
Together, we can help. Thanks to the thoughtfulness of Norah and David, guests of their wedding are invited to donate to the Education Foundation of Ottawa in lieu of gifts. They are most appreciative of your generosity in marking their special day by giving back to those children most in need attending the OCDSB.
The Education Foundation of Ottawa helps by providing food, clothing and emergency medication to students that live at or below the poverty line. In 2014/15 more than $350,000 was provided to more than 15,000 students in 126 schools across the OCDSB. We ensure that children have snacks throughout the day and that they have the tools needed in class to learn and prosper.
Additionally, the EFO works with donors to enhance the educational experience of young learners. We support participation in athletics, the arts and other extra-curricular activities. We want to help students feel equal to their peers by giving them opportunities they may not otherwise have as well as ensuring that every student is on a level playing field and has the tools they require to learn and succeed.
