For the past several years, during the month of March, dedicated volunteers have been selling Shamrock pins to raise money to support the residents at St. Patrick’s Home. This year’s campaign was a huge success, led by Mike O’Neill and Mike Ferrigan from the Knights of Columbus.

We would like to recognize and thank Mike and Mike for their time and hard work coordinating the Shamrock Sales Fundraiser. Boxes of pins are assembled by local high school students at Immaculata High School and Holy Trinity High School and then distributed to local parishes and Irish establishments around Ottawa. We are also grateful to everyone who made a donation. Every bit adds up and the 2018 campaign raised over $5,000!

These funds will go towards our most critical needs, funding medical equipment, palliative care and therapeutic programming for our residents.
