About Our Chapter

Our Winnipeg chapter has been focused on bringing relief to the city’s needy since 1998. Some of the projects we have created or facilitated include a free 2-week summer camp for kids who are wards of Child and Family Services agencies, providing life skills classes to youth who are in the foster care system or living independently, Christmas parties for inner city families, and serving the Winnipeg community through community cleanups, barbecues and blood drives.

Aimee Bowcott has been a HOPE worldwide volunteer for over 20 years and is honoured to be able to give in any capacity, whether giving blood, community clean ups, making food, packing supplies, facilitating life skills sessions or helping out in the background organizing events. She works as a Regional Manager for Community Nutrition. Though a Dietitian by profession, one of her favourite hobbies is baking (nothing healthy)! The rest of her time is spent with family: her husband Jordan, two sons Aidan and JJ, and of course their dog Buddy!

Anna Petter is currently employed at the Winnipeg Church of Christ as the Junior Women’s Ministry Leader. She has volunteered in many capacities with HOPE worldwide over the years in Alaska, Ontario, and Manitoba including projects like helping to build a camp for underprivileged youth, creating Christmas bundles for children overseas and assisting in the HVC Winnipeg in 2019. Her and her husband Tim, moved to Winnipeg in January 2020 to be a part of and help support the campus and singles ministry there. Her favourite activities include hiking, longboarding, crafting, and spending quality time with others.
