People have been asking us lately how they can help. If you would like to make a donation of some kind, or a $ donation please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. 100% of any money raised or donated goes directly to our families. It helps us to provide the following things: meals, grocery cards, gas cards, parking passes, accommodation and respite for child and siblings. We are so grateful for everything we receive that helps our families.
We now have our very own Le Chocolatier decadent chocolate bars. They are available in four different flavors and the photographs are done by our very own co-founder Amanda. Thank you to Tina at Print Craft in Canmore for doing such a great job making the labels for us and of course to Le Chocolatier for the delicious chocolate!
Huge thank you to the Bagel Co and everyone who bought their delicious coffee from there for the month of April. Thank you Shanyn and Darren for your generosity!
Big shout out to the town of Canmore for approving our request for a Grant. The money will go towards the cost of our Family Care Packages. Thank you TOC for your support!
We are holding our 1st Annual Bottle Drive on Monday, May 18th, 10am – 4pm. Please help by contacting us to collect your stash of bottles on the Monday. You can also donate at any time at Canmore Bottle Depot and mention that the money is going to the Hope for Kids account.
We are still in need of a few more volunteers for this event.
April marked the start of our new program – ‘Family Dinner Night’. Families get to enjoy a freshly cooked meal from Pizza Hut in Canmore consisting of pasta dishes, salads, chicken wings, bread, drinks and of course pizza! Less time spent cooking = more family time. THANK YOU Tony of Pizza Hut for your generosity and Jeff for being so helpful . We look forward to delivering more meals to our wonderful families.
We are pleased to announce that local business the Rocky Mountain Bagel Co. is donating a percentage from each cup of coffee sold during the whole month of April! Make sure to drop by their Main St. location and their Bow Valley Trail one opposite the hospital and your cup (or three) of coffee today! Huge thanks to Shanyn and Darren for your generosity!
Stay tuned for a new fundraiser within the next few weeks.

Big thank you to Valbella Meats for our current fundraiser and to everyone who purchased some yummy food!
We have partnered up with a company that sells gift cards. You purchase gift cards from us for places that you normally shop at and we get a small percentage of the total you order. All gift cards you buy are at face value so it doesn’t cost you a thing. Retail therapy and helping out a non-profit – what could be better?!
Gift cards available include: Walmart, Safeway, Winners, Toys R Us, Shell, Petro, Canadian Tire, The Keg, Starbucks, Fairmont Hotels, Home Depot, Home Hardware, Mark’s, Shoppers Drug Mart, Sportchek and The Children’s Place to name a few – there are over 75 retailers to choose from.
If you’re doing your shopping anyway please order some gift cards and support ‘Hope for Kids’.
