Formula 4 Hope 2023

Dear St. Hilda’s family,

This year we as a church have decided to once again support the important work of the Atwell Centre by participating in the Formula 4 Hope Baby Bottle fund raiser.

About Atwell Centre

“We are a medical, educational and support centre for women and men facing unexpected pregnancies, post-abortion realities and questions surrounding their sexual health. We believe that women and men should be empowered to make the best decision they can with the best evidence-based information available.”

For more information on Atwell Centre please visit:

Formula 4 Hope

Formula 4 Hope is an annual fundraising campaign that helps support Atwell Centre’s work with women & men in downtown Hamilton and Halton. The campaign runs between Mother’s Day (Sunday May 14) and Father’s Day (Sunday June 18).

This year’s goal is to raise $90,000 for women who depend on Atwell for their services, in both Hamilton and Halton.

St. Hilda’s Participation

Personal participation is entirely optional. Please note that any donations to Formula 4 Hope Atwell should be above & beyond your regular St. Hilda’s giving.

There are two ways that you can donate: 1) by filling a provided baby bottle with coins, cash or cheques or donate online to a ‘virtual baby bottle’. For those wanting to use a physical baby bottle, they will be distributed after the Sunday May 14 St. Hilda’s service.

If you wish to participate in the ‘Virtual (online) Edition’, a “2023 – St. Hilda’s Oakville” team page has been launched:

Once on St. Hilda’s Formula 4 Hope fundraising page, click on the “Give Now” button to donate.

Notes: You do not need to have an account on JustGiving to donate; you may donate as a guest. Your donation amount can be hidden from public view if selected. Based on our last year’s Formula 4 Hope giving of $970, we have been challenged to raise $1000. Charitable tax receipts will be issued by Atwell Centre.

Thank you for prayerful consideration.
