Annual General Meeting

posted Aug 22, 2021, 7:13 AM by Pam Wulff

Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well.

Homes for Hope will be holding our Annual General Meeting next month. It has been 2 long years since we have been able to meet so I hope everyone can make it.

 

We will be hosting it outdoors on Saturday September 11, 2pm at the Lion's Pavilion, St. Marys, ON   https://goo.gl/maps/u1XuHxnbkkSrggPR7

The sign at the entrance of the park is "Milt Dunnell Park".  Locals call it "The Flats"!

There is plenty of parking, a roofed pavilion and washroom close by.

There are some picnic tables but please bring your own chair. Also since it is outdoors, dress accordingly.

 

There is a limit of 50 people so please RSVP if you plan to attend.

 

We look forward to seeing you 😊

Winter 2022 Trips

Well, we have gone more than a year since our teams last went to the communities of Las Lajas.  
During that year, we supported the communities with medical aid, food packages and infrastructure support.
We also funded 10 houses that were built by our local crew of Salvadorans! 

And we are happy to say we are starting the plans to send teams down next year!!
We have 2 teams full and ready to go and we are working on the third team to complete the trifecta LOL
We are staying positive that we can send the teams down come January, to continue our support of the peoples of Las Lajas, Loma Chata and Chacarita!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Homes for Hope is sad that we could not host our Annual Christmas Social this year, but we have not forgotten about our many friends and family.  Our efforts in supporting the communities of Las Lajas have continued through 2020 and will into 2021. We were able to send money for 10 houses, pay for the weekly doctor visit to the Clinic, fund sanitization projects, purchase food packages for 135 families and fund other small projects.

We thank you for your support over the last years and hope that you can continue to donate in support of our El Salvador friends.

From the Homes for Hope Board, we wish you a Very Merry Christmas and healthy happy New Year!

Thank you to Daryl McClure & Co, CPA Professional Corporation

Daryl and his staff have provided Homes for Hope, El Salvador with exceptional services for the last several years, maintaining our financial records and filing with CRA. 

It is with their diligence and quality of work that we are able to continue as a Registered Canadian Charity. 

Recently several of our Board members treated Daryl and his staff to a heartfelt 'Thank-you' lunch at Jennies Restaurant in St Marys.
