The vision and inspiration of Niagara’s
Alzheimer Society, Coffee Break® events are held in homes,
offices, community centers, schools, churches, city halls,
retail outlets, and health facilities - just about anywhere
coffee can be served and a donation collected. Over the
years, Coffee Break® hosts have become very creative in
their fundraising efforts, hosting BBQs, parties and even
community challenges. Small or large, simple or elaborate,
each break truly makes a difference in the lives of those
affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
Last year, thanks to
the generosity of hundreds of Coffee Break hosts, over
$71,000.00 was raised for the Client Services Program. Your
help is needed to reach Niagara’s 2012 goal of $100,000.
