Ottawans need our help!

Sewing for Ottawa is a volunteer initiative that came together to help Ottawans during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Phase 1 “Sewing for Frontliners” is now complete.  In 2 months we donated:

  • Scrub caps: 7392
  • Headbands with buttons:  7281
  • Ear savers:  665
  • Isolation Gowns: 80
  • Non-medical masks: 5000

We are now into Phase 2 “Sewing for Residents”

We are donating non-medical masks to vulnerable and low-income populations via organizations that serve these residents, like food banks, shelters, community resource centres, etc. 

If you are an organization serving our vulnerable neighbours, and you would like to help us distribute to your clientele, please send us an email to to discuss your needs.
