OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 2, 2016) - Giant Tiger has announced it will allocate a generous $25,000 to Citizen Advocacy Ottawa to support their Everyday Champions, Walking in My Shoes and Children's Sibling Group programs in 2017.
"We are honoured to be supporting such an important organization," says Julia Knox, Senior Vice President, Strategy and Customer Experience. "We know that Giant Tiger's contribution will help enrich the great work being done by Citizen Advocacy Ottawa and throughout our community." As a proud Canadian retailer, Giant Tiger donates over $2 million annually to community charities and associations throughout Canada.
Citizen Advocacy Ottawa, founded in 1974, is one of the few agencies supporting people of all ages across the disability spectrum. The group recognizes the resilience of individuals with disabilities and their families as they struggle for access to support and services.
"Each year on December 3rd, the International Day of Persons with Disabilities reminds us of the challenges those with a disability face every day," says Brian Tardiff, Executive Director. "With the wonderful community support we receive, such as the generous donation from Giant Tiger, we are working towards creating a community that welcomes and values the participation and contributions of all citizens, including those living with disabilities."
Citizen Advocacy Ottawa is a strong community leader and Giant Tiger Stores Limited is honoured to be a long-time sponsor of their inclusive programming.
