Put a Cork in Poverty Campaign

Bev, one of the Hope Centre board members, shared a unique fundraiser they are working on, inspired by the location.
"We're going to be running a 'Put a Cork in Poverty' campaign using all these corks." Bev shared motioning to the immense cork collection around the top of the room, adding "The owner kindly donated the corks to us, and we'll be selling them for $1 each to help raise funds to cover the rent."

The corks come from the many bottles of wine that were serve in Joel's over the years.
Another fundraiser in the works, is a Pie Social, where people will be able to enjoy pie and coffee for $5. Be sure to bookmark this post for more details on these events when we receive them.
