Pigs Of Hope Committee Members

Volunteers Needed For Pigs of Hope Campaign

Looking to give back during the holidays? We are looking for volunteers to help us with the success of our Pigs of Hope campaign!

The Pigs of Hope campaign raises funds for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Wheels of Hope transportation program, which provides our neighbours to cancer-related appointments.

We need to get our piggies adopted for the holidays! People can adopt a piggy (bank), name it, dress it up and bring it to all their holiday parties! Feed it well and return it after the holidays with a full belly.

Volunteers needed to help with this fun and rewarding campaign! Help us get these piggies out in the community!

For more information, please email Theresa!
