Ace and Joy founded The Hamilton Dream Center food bank in Hamilton, ON because they wanted to give back. After having lived the lifestyle of outlaw motorcycle gang members they knew that they needed to become people who offered HOPE to a broken community.
Their passion for picking people up and setting them on a life changing path is evident each and every day as they help feed and clothe countless families each year.
Dreaming of Christmas
Almost 300 people had Christmas dinner from the Dream Center.
813 toys were given away. The largest demographic of children was the 11+ group,
followed by the 7-10 year olds.
The approximate value given away this Christmas was $11,880.00.
Thank you to all of you that donated food, toys or a monetary gift this year.
We could not do it without you!
We met and helped a lot of people this year. 144 new clients - not having used our Pantry before. 1/3 of our clients are children and seniors. The need in Hamilton is great but so are our volunteers and donors!
In 2017, the total amount of finances donated was approximately $76,000.00 (some Christmas gifts are still being tallied.) - thank you Donors! This year we gave away $298,625.00 worth of food, clothes, toiletries, toys and other items. This does not include the value of services provided such as income tax services filed for our clients.
This means that for every dollar you donated, we turned it into $3.93!!!
That's the best return on your investment you'll ever find.
Invest in the people of Hamilton today. This year, 2018. We will continue to make your money go as far as we can.
We will continue to be a light in a darkened place and help those who are in need. Your new or gently used clothing and non perishable food items are always welcome. Financial support is needed and will help us to continue the work. Volunteer opportunities are available.
