Coffee Break is the Alzheimer Society of Hastings-Prince Edward's major annual fundraiser where friends, co-workers and customers gather to raise funds for local Alzheimer Societies. Participants at these events donate in exchange for a cup of coffee.
It's easy. You can hold a break in your office, at home, at your church, in a local mall or anywhere you can set up a stand and serve coffee. You can also offer tea and juice or raise more funds by adding cookies or pastries. It’s your Coffee Break, so be creative and have fun!
You can become an Anything for Alzheimer's host!
Anything for Alzheimer's events are held in homes, offices, community centres, schools, churches, city halls, retail outlets and health facilities - just about anywhere coffee can be served and a donation collected.
Over the years, Anything for Alzheimer's 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.
By fundraising through Anything for Alzheimer’s, you’ll become part of an invaluable collective of individuals, corporate and community groups who are dedicated to making a difference for caregivers and people living with Alzheimer’s or another dementia.
The Alzheimer Society is dedicated to helping anyone concerned with or facing dementia have the confidence and skills to maintain quality of life, to ensuring that public policy and perceptions reflect the issues and reality, to securing funding for support and research and to raising awareness about the disease.
