UPDATES ON The Fire Relief Campaign for HopeSpring. As many of you know that our organization received a blow with the recent fire at the The Inn of Waterloo.

Many thanks for the following businesses for their assistance in collecting donated items on behalf of HopeSpring - The Inn of Waterloo front lobby and Frannie's Restaurant and Bakery are now accepting physical donations. 

HopeSpring lost a significant portion of its physical items, an estimated 80-90% of the items we owned where destroyed. We continue to assess what we need to replace and will continually update the listing. 

We also need to boldly say that we are 100% functioning regardless of the hurdle and it is our passion and mission to ensure anyone with cancer and their care network have what they need for their cancer  journey.  We are here for anyone, at any stage, no questions asked, ALWAYS. 

We are looking for headcoverings and cancer caps in neutral or solid colours for our members. These headcoverings are provided to our members who are losing or have lost their hair due to cancer treatment, through no-contact delivery methods. We are also looking for matching fabric face masks for our members.

If you have some you’d like to donate, you can drop them off at the Inn of Waterloo front desk. For more information, please call us at 519-742-4673.
