Sunday, April 19th, will mark the start of National Volunteer Week in Canada. It’s a coast-to-coast-to-coast celebration of the commitment, dedication, generosity and selflessness of Canada’s almost 12.7 million volunteers. This couldn’t be more timely!
This year's theme It’s time to applaud this country’s volunteers encourages all Canadians to loudly and proudly cheer for Canada’s volunteers. This year, we shine the spotlight on those volunteering to support essential services during this public health crisis, and to salute those who help by staying home to protect themselves and their community.
Canada’s volunteers give time in support of causes and programs they believe in and ask for nothing in return. The value of the volunteering you do at HOPE to support parents builds confidence, community and connections reminding us that when we give our time and talent, we gain even more. We meet new people, learn new valuable skills and broaden our horizons. We raise each other up and bring us all closer together.
Canadians are invited this week to post a Cheers to Volunteers! poster in their windows for all to see. A ready-made poster is available at volunteer.ca or you are welcome to make your own. Also Canadians can post Volunteer Canada's gif on social media with the hashtags #CheersToVolunteers and #NVW2020.
Let’s join together and ensure the 12.7 million Canadian volunteers you are part of, receive a well-deserved round of applause!
The health and well-being of HOPE members and the broader community is our priority.

DOES YOUR WORKPLACE RUN AN ANNUAL UNITED WAY CAMPAIGN? PLEASE CONSIDER DESIGNATING YOUR GENEROUS GIFT TO HOPE INC.
Please be sure that you designate to the correct HOPE (Helping Other Parents Everywhere) with charitable registration number 83946 7693 RR001 and not confused with the another HOPE (Helping Other People Everywhere). Your generosity is very much appreciated.
United Way is a charity dedicated to creating opportunities for a better life for everyone in our region. Working in partnership with others, people and resources are mobilized to support a network of agencies, such as HOPE Inc, that help people when they need it most. United Way also addresses the root causes of social problems, working to change community conditions for the better over the long term.
Thanks to this incredible support, the proceeds from the silent auction broke all records at the HOPE annual conference held May 4, 2019. Funds will be used for the education of the membership, so HOPE can grow and meet the growing needs of communities. It is expected that two or more community groups will open in the coming months. A special thanks to Underwood's Catering for the excellent food, Starbucks (Mount Pleasant) for the great coffee, and the amazing staff at the Toronto Botanical Garden, adding to the success of the day. A heartfelt thanks to the speakers for sharing their time and expertise - Maureen and James Brine, Ann Douglas and from Jack.org Gabby and Kristen.
