Delivering Hope with Rochelle started in October 2019 as an idea to have a giveaway through Rochelle’s business Facebook page “Rochelle Dale- Salmon Arm Shuswap Real Estate” to encourage everyone to nominate a Non-Profit or Charity that was near and dear to their hearts. To nominate, you had to comment why you felt your organization could use the $1000 donation from Rochelle and why.
The Giveaway began on October 1st, and continued collecting nominations until the 14th of October. Rochelle and her assistant Debbie went through every nomination and Rochelle then handpicked one deserving Non-Profit.
2021 is the second year Rochelle has held the Delivering Hope Giveaway, and she was so pleased to drop off her donation of $1000 to Monica and Christine of the Non-Profit Group “Friends Feeding Friends” Rochelle got a chance to meet some of the vulnerable in the community and it was a humbling and emotional experience for her. These are our mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers….. it could be one of your loved ones. Rochelle is thankful that we have this group of hardworking volunteers, that show up over and over to make sure everyone has the opportunity to have a healthy meal in a safe environment.
The first Delivering Hope Giveaway in 2019 was awarded to NOSBIS (North Okanagan-Shuswap Brain Injury Society) and it was such a joy for Rochelle to hand deliver the cheque to Carlene Duczek – Executive Director & President of the Board of Directors for NOSBIS.
Rochelle enjoyed this giveaway, it was the first; but definitely not the last Delivery of Hope we will see from her.
