Celebrate the GIVING Spirit of Wellington West

Bundle up for seasonal activities, contests and events in Hintonburg and Wellington Village!

November and December marks GIVING season in Wellington West! Throughout, we highlight the importance of giving back and community connection, as well as supporting local during the holidays. Home for the holidays? Spend them with the merchants of Hintonburg and Wellington Village this GIVING season!

Our GIVING season charity partner is Hintonburg’s Ottawa West Community Support (OWCS). We’re fundraising to support OWCS assembling gift baskets for over 2000 seniors in their Aging in Place, Assisted Living and Community programs.

Find opportunities to donate at our community events throughout December below more information on our annual holiday contests!
