Niagara Warehouse of Hope was founded in 1989 by St. Catharines resident Ted van der Zalm Sr, which was created to share our wealth with Guatemala, Haiti & Nicaragua.
They support many areas such as Hope for Eyesight, Hope for Babies, Hope for Education and Hope for Hospitals.  Through donations of used eyeglasses, homemade layettes, computer equipment, seeking hospital equipment and even fresh vegetables, the over 100 volunteers work tirelessly to fill the needs of the citizens for these countries.
