Looking for a place to volunteer?

HopeSpring is actively seeking new volunteers. Our Front Desk Volunteers play a key role in ensuring that HopeSpring is a warm and inviting place.

To qualify as a Front Desk Volunteer, one must:

  • be at least 18 years of age
  • be willing to meet at HopeSpring for discussion about the role
  • attend HopeSpring for orientation and training
  • commit to 3 hours each week

Although many Front Desk Volunteers are cancer patients or caregivers of cancer patients, any member of the community is welcome in this role. We welcome you to contact Lois Peterson to apply at ExecutiveDirector@HopeSpring.ca

Thank you!

Thank you to the Board of the India Canada Association Waterloo Region for donating the proceeds of your musical evening in May to HopeSpring. Thank you for your generous donation! 37891983_1949641308430785_1358650261991587840_n.jpg

Celebrating the life of Frieda Keller

Today we celebrated the life of Frieda Keller, who passed on July 20, 2018, 93 years young. We thank Frieda for sharing her time as a volunteer with HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre. We thank Frieda for sharing her own flowers with us. We welcomed Frieda's sociability, warmth and hospitality. She made all who encountered her, feel welcome. She will be greatly missed by her children Betty Anne Keller (Alan McGowan) and Rob Keller (Susan Kinzie). You remain in our thoughts and prayers.
