On September 21, World Alzheimer’s Day, Canadians are invited to Make a difference, one cup at a time by taking part in Coffee Break®, the Alzheimer Society’s largest nationwide fundraiser that simply asks participants to share a cup of coffee in exchange for a donation to their local Society.
Last year, Coffee Break hosts raised over $70,000.00 locally, and this year, we’re excited to welcome Melitta as our coffee sponsor, and exceed this amount. Funds raised support local programs and services such as support groups, counselling, education and Recreation Therapy. With 2,800 local people affected by a dementia each year, these services are needed more than ever to give people living with dementia and their caregivers the best quality of life possible.
Hosting a Coffee Break is easy! A coffee break can be hosted anywhere and for any length of time. Contact the local Alzheimer Society to register and a kit will be delivered to you containing a coin box, promotional materials and information on how to host your coffee break event.
Coffee Break events run throughout September and October, and are generously supported by Melitta this years’ coffee sponsor.
To brew up your event, call Bea at the local Alzheimer Society at 705-942-2195, or email at [email protected].
