Denise Gabriele - Poulin is the founder and operator, with her husband Jim, of Hope Creations. She taught herself to make jewelry and they began to sell it. All the money made goes to those in need. Denise makes necklaces, anklets, earrings, etc. and she will design special orders. Denise and Jim are active in the Lions Club, Relay for Life and other community activities and events. She is very passionate in her desire to help conquer cancer and gave us a phone number to call for information about this disease - 800-227-2345. Denise asked us to consider joining ACS CAN, which is dedicated to ending cancer. Their website is acscan.org/relay. She displayed samples of her jewelry (it is beautiful!) and if you want more information call 914-920-8045 or email her at email@example.com.
