All requests are confidential and there are no citizenship questions asked.
A NOTE OF APPRECIATION:
There just aren’t enough words to express how thankful I am for the financial assistance I received from HOPEsudbury. I’ve been in a tight spot for a while now, and the money provided by HOPEsudbury towards my costly heating bill will help immensely. I honestly never pictured myself in a position where I would need financial assistance, but as we all know life doesn’t always go as planned. With the support of HOPEsudbury I can now see a light at the end of the tunnel and get back on track financially. I will be forever grateful to HOPEsudbury and my goal is to one day give back.
A very thankful and appreciative Sudbury resident
