Just like that…we’ve wrapped up another year for Bag of Hope. It’s such a whirlwind with all of the preparations and organization that we don’t really get a chance to stop and think about the impact that it has while we are in the thick of things. We are so very grateful to be able to provide donations to the people from JPHAWC, Mosaic and St. Vincent De Paul, and the generosity of those around us is truly amazing and appreciated.
We’d like to thank our extremely generous sponsors; CTV Edmonton, 790 CFCW, ADESA Edmonton Public Auctions, Edmonton Eskimo Football Club, Make A Stance Productions and DV-Ate Catering, Cooper & O’Hara, BNI Alberta, Radisson Hotel Edmonton South, and Bill’s Canine Teeth Cleaning!
To our amazing volunteers – We realize that this is a hectic time of year for everyone, so from the bottom of our hearts we thank you for contributing your time. 125+ hours of time was given to Bag of Hope and considering how precious time is, that amount is staggering!
And last but not least, thank you so much to the public for helping us raise over $5000 for our 2013 Bag of Hope Campaign. The donations are still rolling in! A huge thanks goes out to Rhett Bagnall from Specialized Benefits for his generous contribution too.
There’s no way any of this would have been possible with out the help from all of our sponsors, volunteers, and everyone who has made a donation to our cause. Because of all of you, Bag of Hope 2013 was a success!
Here’s to a wonderful holiday season and an even better 2014!
