Who is Enspire?

A Sense of Hope

“I first visited the Philippines when I was sixteen and was completely culture shocked by the poverty and destitution. It was painful seeing so much poverty and thinking there was nothing I can do to help. The BCP trip changed this feeling of helplessness by offering the opportunity to create better lives for these poor families by building houses in a new, clean community. It instilled a sense of hope and pride in me that was made possible through Enspire Foundation.”

Group Bookings

We are happy to accommodate group registrations. It’s a great way for groups/teams to collaborate, build trust, and serve our community!

There are two ways for group bookings:

A. Have each volunteer register individually for our regular scheduled dates. See above for Upcoming Soup Kitchens.

B. Book a special date for your group.

If you would like to book on a special date, please read the following guidelines.

1. Groups are responsible to find a minimum of 10 to a maximum of 20 volunteers. It will be the group’s responsibility to find replacements in the case of any last minute cancellations and ensure the group is ready to prepare the food for the scheduled date.

2. Groups are required to donate $250 to cover the cost of the food and supplies. Enspire will take care of picking up the items and will have it ready for the scheduled date. There will also be an Enspire Soup Kitchen Lead to coordinate the preparation of the meal. The meal we will serve is a fresh pasta dish, salad, garlic toast, and dessert.

3. Groups must book at least 3 months in advance and submit the donation to reserve the date at least 30 days before the scheduled date. Once the donation has been received by e-banking transfer or cheque, the scheduled date is confirmed.

4. Our soup kitchens are open to all ages. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
