Dear Parents and Guardians,
Every day thousands of students in the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB)
come to school without vital medication, hungry and cold due to socio-economic
challenges out of their control.
The Education Foundation of Ottawa (EFO), an independent charity, works with the
OCDSB to help by providing food, warm clothing, medication and funding for
extracurricular activities for these students.
In the first five months of the 2014/15 school year,
we have provided more than $100,000 to helpwith these basic necessities.
We can not do this alone. We need your help.
Thanks to your support last year more than $30,000 was raised to support emergent
needs of students across OCDSB now you can help too through our Toonie Tuesday
One hundred percent of funds raised on Toonie Tuesday are invested in our students

We invite our parent community to support Toonie Tuesday on
February 24th, 2015. We are asking students to donate a Toonie!

which supports the extraordinary and emergency needs of individual students brought
about by financial hardship.
On February 24th, 2015 please send your child with a Toonie (or more) to help meet the
critical necessities for our students.Thank you!
