PHOTOS: Abbotsford residents share ‘Hope for’ messages

Initiative started by Abbotsford News and six local businesses and organizations

The Abbotsford News and six other businesses and organizations tasked locals to share what they’re hoping for during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Locals were asked to use the special “Hope For” pages in an edition of The News last month to write out a message of hope and tape it to a window in your house or business for all to see.

RELATED: ‘Hope for …’ window campaign launched in Abbotsford

The “Hope For…” initiative ran for several weeks and aimed to foster a show of support for our fellow Abbotsfordians. It took the concept of love and support introduced through the hearts-in-the-window campaign and the 7 p.m. nightly frontline pot-banging, and takes it a step further.
