|I am pleased to share some exciting news with you. It is the launch of the Tree of Hope Campaign. This campaign when completed will give our newest location at 145 Castlefrank Road in Kanata — Hope Living — a complete $500,000 updating.
The funds raised will be used to replace the expansive roof, upgrade windows and doors, replace carpet, provide new paint and refresh common areas. The Campaign kicked off with a generous donation of $50,000 in memory of a friend of Shepherds of Good Hope, William F. Burrows. Right now our tree in the front foyer has 26 leaves on it. We are hoping to fill the tree with 180 leaves. You can show your support and be a part of Hope Living by purchasing a leaf with your name on it for $2500 where it will be placed in the tree for all to see.

It is an ambitious campaign but one that I know we can achieve because it is a necessity. Our generous donors all know and understand how important having a clean, safe, warm place to call home is.
My second bit of wonderful news involves a special partnership with CBC Radio. Last December CBC hosted a Holiday Charity Drive called “We are More Than a Soup Kitchen” in support of Shepherds of Good Hope. Together, we managed to raise over $83,000 for the poor and homeless in this city. Well, they have graciously accepted us for a second year to join them in raising funds for the marginalized. We learned the important news at our AGM on September 18th when CBC made the announcement to all in attendance. We are extremely excited to be working with CBC again this year!
As always, if you have any questions about our organization, the work we do or a tour of our facilities please call me directly at (613) 789-8210 #247 or email me at email@example.com.
