Thanks to the overwhelming support of the generous Ottawa community, Canadian furniture and home décor retailer, Urban Barn, will be making a very special holiday delivery. Hundreds of brand new fleece blankets will be delivered to Knox Presbyterian Church Centre 120 (Out of the Cold) of Ottawa on Wednesday Dec. 9, 2015 from 9am-11am.
