Updates Summer 2011

May 14, 2011

Eyes of Hope has been very busy this year! Just a quick recap:

– Habitat for Humanity has been a big theme this year. We’ve co-hosted Habitat Week as well as a Talent Show to raise over $600 for HFH. And of course we went on a build too.

– Umbrella Painting has been another big theme for EOH this year. It has been running weekly to interact with street-involved youth in Toronto. We had a chance to show off the artwork at the Skule Arts Festival as well!

– We hosted five Sandwich Runs this year, with more to come this summer.

– Six fundraisers (that included pizza, waffle, bake and raffle sales and bucket collections) raised much money for HFH, World Vision, and Free the Children. Our latest fundraiser for the Japan relief was very successful: through pizza and raffle sales and very generous donations, we raised $501, with donations going towards World Vision.

– Four visits to Scott Mission and a visit to the Daily Bread Food Bank to make a local impact.

– Seven Leadership Development sessions were held for those interested in learning more about being a leader.

– And several socials rounded off the busy year!

Thanks to all the volunteers who came by to help with events – we couldn’t have done it without you! And those who came by the events – you’re equally as important! Together, we all donated over $3000 to various charities this past school year.

Now, keep your eyes peeled for summer events…
