Omar Al-Dib

Omar has been actively advocating and contributing to the Ottawa and Carleton University communities. He’s dedicated to engaging youth through team-building efforts, which prompted him to create a philanthropic, student-run organization called CU Smile. Over the years, Omar has implemented over 50 CU Smile initiatives which have inspired more than 100 youth volunteers to make an impact in Ottawa.

Operation Lunchbag is one of the most recurring CU Smile initiatives in which Omar has participated. This initiative consists of providing students with a platform to prepare and distribute lunch bags to those in need. Students would raise funds for a week, then use the money donated to purchase food items and ingredients to make lunch bags for people experiencing homelessness.
