This Saturday, Lights of Hope “set up day” starts bright and early for volunteers
Submitted by St. Paul's Foundation
This Saturday, November 5, over 100 volunteers, most starting as early as 6am, will continue the tradition of joining the staff of St. Paul’s Foundation to set up the display for the Foundation’s Lights of Hope fundraiser.
Set-up takes place at the Burrard entrance of St. Paul’s from 6am until mid-afternoon, with this entrance closed and foot traffic re-routed to the Comox entrance. Lots of orange vested volunteers will be on site to help people find their way. A single lane on Burrard Street will be partially closed to traffic. The hospital parkade on Burrard Street will be accessible as usual.
Staff donations urged to spark early momentum
Lights of Hope is St. Paul’s biggest fundraiser of the year and it supports the hospital’s greatest needs. Everyone who works at St. Paul’s is encouraged to make a donation as early gifts from staff help generate momentum for the public campaign, which begins with a celebratory lighting ceremony on November24.
PHC staff are asked to please give today at www.lightsofhope.com
