Change for HOPE

Change for HOPE - formerly Pennies for HOPEThroughout 2012 & 2013, Power of HOPE had a lot of success with its Pennies for HOPE Campaign, raising $2714 in Waterloo & Wellington and $557 in Woodstock & area.

Our campaign continues each year but in 2014 after the Canadian penny expired, we changed its name to Change for HOPE and we collect all types of coins (and notes too)!

Help us reach our annual goal of $5,000

You can help us give hope to families in need each and every Christmas and throughout the year by collecting the change from your morning coffees or your loose pocket / purse change then donating it to Power of HOPE.

How to get your donation to us:

  • Drop off your change at one of these locations
  • Donate your change at one of our fundraising events
  • Contact us to arrange pick up of your donation (large donations only)
  • Take your coins to your bank then donate online through PayPal here.

Please note: we accept all donation amounts. However, we are able to provide donation tax receipts.

PJs & house-coats; slippers & socks; bath towels & face cloths; knitted hats, mitts & scarves; and other much needed items.
