If you collect Shopper's Optimum Points, you can donate them to the Distress Centre!


You already know that our Centre is 24/7 based.  That means we have volunteers who are with us when the majority of our community is sleeping, to be there for those who are awake & dealing with issues that affects their own ability to sleep.

With volunteers being here 24/7, we do our best to ensure that their time here is comfortable.  We have snacks, drinks and toiletries available to them at all times, as needed.  

When you choose to donate your Shopper's Optimum Points, you're helping us to purchase those items to have on hand for our 24/7 volunteers.  

Donating your points is easy!  Visit Shopper's Drug Mart, log in to your Optimum account, choose the amount of points you would like to donate from your account, and choose the Distress Centre of Ottawa & Region.  

Thank you for donating your points!  You are making a difference!
