Rockland Supports Hope Mission This Season
Giving back to the community year-round is important to us at Rockland but winter is a time when our most vulnerable community members really need extra support to access warm clothing, shelter and hot meals. When we heard about the devastating fire at Hope Mission that wiped out most of its winter supplies early in October, we decided we had to do something big!
In support of the Hope Mission, we're hosting a fundraising event where 100% of the proceeds will be donated to providing winter supplies and care for those who are hurting and hungry in our community.
DIY Holiday Decor Workshop Fundraiser
You're invited to create a custom wooden sign for the holidays while raising funds for a good cause!
Enjoy a night out and make your very own holiday decor sign that you and your family will love for years to come. Customize the colour and design of your sign the way you want. Get inspired by your favourite holiday song lyrics, quotes or perhaps your home needs a naughty & nice list! This workshop will be hosted by Tammy from Little Bit’a Country and spots are limited.
Tuesday, November 30th
Central Social Hall St. Albert
Tickets are $70 per person (proceeds go to Hope Mission)
Tickets for this fundraising event includes everything you need to create your very own unique sign, a complementary drink and an entry to win one of three holiday door prizes! All proceeds raised from this event will be donated to the Hope Mission to provide hot meals, winter clothing and shelter for those in need.
So grab a friend and get ready to "sleigh all day", "let it snow", "jingle all the way", etc. Snag your tickets and get crafty for a good cause!

With homelessness on the rise due to unemployment, mental illness and other causes, it's critical that non-profit agencies have the funding they need to serve our most vulnerable population. Everyone deserves to have access to shelter, food and warm clothing but most importantly, they need a place to feel safe and cared for. We can make a difference and we encourage others to join us to support impoverished and homeless men, women and children.
What is the Hope Mission?
The Hope Mission was established in 1929 to support those in the Edmonton area who struggle to receive basic and emergency level care. Together, the community can support and strengthen those who find themselves in these unfortunate situations by helping provide consistent hot meals, winter clothing, shelter and more. Through monetary contributions, clothing donations, and volunteer support, we can make a difference!
