Put the Coffee on and Perk Up – for the Alzheimer Society.


Sault Ste. Marie, ON – On September 20th, you 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. It’s a fun way to raise funds for a great cause and enjoy a cup of coffee while catching up with friends and family.

Last year, Coffee Break hosts raised over $66,000.00 locally, and we are hoping to exceed that amount this year so that there will be more funds raised to support local programs and services such as support groups, counselling, education, the Minds in Motion® Program and Recreation Therapy. With an increase in the need for these services, supporting a Coffee Break is one way of assisting in improving the quality of life of people living with a dementia.

Hosting an Alzheimer Society 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, and a tin of Melitta coffee.

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 http://[email protected]
