What is Hope Heals?
Hope Heals is a fundraising campaign lead by students and faculty from the Algonquin College Public Relations (ACPR) program, in keeping with the program’s custom of choosing a valuable local charity and launching fundraiser efforts on their behalf each year. This year, the ACPR students under the “Hope Heals” campaign (a student branded campaign) will be hosting multiple events, starting in March, to raise funds and awareness for The Centre for Treatment of Sexual Abuse and Childhood Trauma (CTSACT).
