Local Businesses Work Together To Bring Change

February 11, 2015; Langley BC: The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope launches a new TEXT TO DONATE campaign this February with the help of Envision Financial and the local Langley Wired Monk Coffee Bistros. Together they have geared up to re-establish a coffee sleeve campaign that directly benefits The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope in Langley. Three Wired Monk locations in Langley; Walnut Grove, Murrayville and Willoughby will be using custom coffee sleeves on each cup they sell that features “text HOPE1002 to 45678 to make a $5 donation to Gateway of Hope”. The goal is for community members to be reminded of the Gateway of Hope’s work in the community and to provide them with this easy way to instantly give back via their phone. This text to donate campaign will go on until February 28, 2015.

Corrine Bradley of the Wired Monk Coffee Bistros says, “We are so privileged to be partnering with Envision Financial and The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope on this campaign. We believe in giving back to the communities we live in, play in and love. This text to donate campaign is such an easy and fun way to give! We would encourage and challenge everyone in the Langley community to stop, think, and give to the Gateway of Hope while you’re out and about picking up your coffee at any Langley Wired Monk Coffee Bistro.”

Envision Financial, a proud long-time partner with the Gateway of Hope, has sponsored the design and production of the coffee sleeves to make this campaign possible. “We’re proud to support innovative partnerships like this one with the Wired Monk and the Gateway of Hope” says Barbara McKeown, branch manager, Langley City and member of the Gateway of Hope’s Community Advisory Council. “At Envision Financial we believe in making a real difference in the lives of those in our communities; by encouraging our coffee drinking neighbours to think of the Gateway of Hope, we know that the excellent support, programming and services will be available to help those in need.”

100% of the proceeds go to The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope and to their work in the Langley community. Community members are invited to attend monthly tours at Gateway of Hope in order to learn more about their programs and services. Please phone their main office to find out tour dates and sign up.

About The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope
The Gateway of Hope opened its doors to the community of Langley in November 2009.
