MPI’s 2023 Charity Auction Raises Banner NAT

MPI’s 2023 Charity Auction Raises $32,587.42

MPI Members voted to support the MPI Foundation, Hopewell, ONFE School Breakfast Program, Moisson Outaouais and the Ottawa Food Bank.  Thanks to everyone who donated and/or bid at the silent and live auctions. The event was a huge success. 

MPI Volunteers met with representatives from each of the charities to celebrate the donations and they asked us to THANK all of you for your continued support of their work in our community. The funds raised will impact their ability to provide much-needed food security and mental health services.
