November Fundraising Goal

We are so incredibly lucky to have such a great community. Thanks to the generosity of the Region, we have continued to smash our goal for November. Thank you so much to Trios College, Capri Salon and Spa and the Guelph Community Foundation. Students at Trios held a bake sale for HopeSpring and Capri held a month-long fundraiser cumulating in the entire staff walking over 3 km from their salon to HopeSpring. We received a grant from the Guelph Community Foundation to support our Better Sleep program for the coming year. If you haven't seen it on our social media, Cambridge Centre Honda is running a Test Drive for Charity for the month of November. Every test drive means $10 for HopeSpring. Print out and bring in this certificate and they'll double it to $20 (http://www.cambridgecentrehonda.com/test-drive-for-charity/). And finally, please save the date for Giving Tuesday on November 28. We appreciate all your support. Donations are always gratefully accepted through our CanadaHelps, or calling in 519-742-4673 to make a donation by credit card or in person.

Can you help?

Thank you to those who were so generous with previous requests. We need:

  • Paper coffee cups

If you can help, please feel free to bring it to our front desk volunteer. If you have any questions, please call Linda at 519-742-1544 ext 103
