salvationarmy_mrshopeMargaret HOPE has spent her lifetime giving to others. She is a ray of sunshine to everyone she meets. Margaret recently used her incredible talent as a gifted artist to support The Salvation Army. The many first place red ribbons, from the Central Canadian Exhibition, are a testimony to her talent.

Margaret spent months creating hundreds of pieces of art to sell. She recruited her husband John. He too used his artistic talents to create interesting items to add to her collection. A friend who heard about Margaret’s project also donated handmade items to her cause. Very soon their sunroom was filled with their ACTION.

The Hope’s, long time supporters of The Salvation Army, have seen how the Army meets very real needs and is a transforming influence in the community. Margaret very generously donated the proceeds of her sale, $2,000, to The Salvation Army Christmas campaign. Her special gift helped put food on empty tables, gloves on bare hands, and toys for children who would have gone without on Christmas morning. Margaret Hope’s ACHIEVEMENT…. She brought Christmas and hope to the destitute, the homeless and hungry individuals and families in her community.
