H.O.P.E., championed by its’ Expand Our Give Committee, as part of the Adopt a Park/Roadway program, is lucky to have adopted Britannia Park, the site of our first ever SummerFest in 1982. Twice a year, a team of volunteers and staff actively keep our shared spaces clean, green, and free of litter and graffiti. H.O.P.E. continues its history of reaching out to, participating with and giving back to our community.
These many successes are made possible because of the support of several committed stakeholders. First, and foremost, H.O.P.E. is a volunteer led and driven organization. It depends on the efforts of an active board of directors, a membership body, and a core planning team of some forty individuals who, in turn, manage close to 700 event-day volunteers at SummerFest. The volunteers are assisted by a small, dedicated staff. H.O.P.E. is also extremely fortunate to count on the generous and continued support of its stellar family of corporate partners as well as the City of Ottawa.
