Coffee Break® supports programs for half a million Canadians with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia.
One in 11 Canadians over the age of 65 has Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia.
Coffee Break® is the Alzheimer Society’s major nationwide annual fundraiser where friends, co-workers and customers gather in communities across Canada to raise funds for local Alzheimer Societies. Foodstuffs in Downtown Georgetown will be hosting a Coffee Break from September 16 to 25. [I think a cafe on Mill St. in Creemore is also participating in this.]
Participants at these events make a donation in exchange for a cup of coffee. The money raised stays in the province or community to help support local programs and services.
Even if you’ve already picked up your “usual” from one of Georgetown’s many great restaurants and coffee shops, you can still support our local Alzheimer Society by stopping in at Foodstuffs to “buy” a coffee cut-out or by visiting the Foodstuffs.ca home page for a link to the on-line Virtual Coffee Break.
The Coffee Break at Foodstuffs will feature local Ultimate Bean coffees brewed fresh for sampling. Every day there will be a draw for fresh-baked treats, coffees and accessories, and all participants will receive a special-edition newsletter filled with recipes, puzzles, coffee lore and nutritional information. Drop by Foodstuffs at 89 Main Street South in Downtown Georgetown any time from September 16 to 25 to join the in-store Coffee Break for our local Alzheimer Society. You’ll be helping someone you know.
