THE METCALFE ORIGINALLY BEGAN AS A YMCA FOR THE COMMUNITY, AND OUR ROOTS REMAIN THERE.
We remain dedicated to our community and ensuring our neighbours reach their full potential. That’s why we partner with the local YMCA-YWCA to raise funds for initiatives such as Y Cycle for Strong Kids, and, with the help of guests and staff, food and toy drives throughout the year.
We encourage our guests and friends to help contribute to this effort; secure donations can be made here.
The Metcalfe Hotel is also a proud supporter of Operation Come Home.
We host an annual BBQ and clothing drive to raise funds and provide warm clothing for this community driven organization.
Operation Come Home is an employment, education, and support centre for homeless and at-risk youth age 16 and up. Their programs focus on what works and what matters to youth, as well as encourages personal growth of everyone as an individual. Operation Come Home is based in Ottawa, Ontario.
Every Spring, numerous members of our team volunteer their time to participate in this wonderful initiative. Helping to clean up our capital one park at a time after the long winter.
