Coffee Break® is a National annual fundraiser for the Alzheimer Society Lanark Leeds Grenville
It is a third party event where you host a social gathering in your Home, Office, Service Club, Church, Hospital, School, Retirement or Long Term Care Facility, Park or any place you choose to gather your friends, family, neighbours, parishioners, clients, co-workers or clients. You can host anywhere coffee or other items can be served.
You can host a traditional Coffee Break® where you have coffee and treats and ask for donations for the Alzheimer Society Lanark Leeds Grenville. Or, you can host any type of social gathering of your choosing. Some examples are; Wine & Cheese, Games Night, BBQ, Bridge or Euchre Tournament. You can be creative with your ideas!
If you are hosting a Coffee Break® at work you could have a Dress Down Day, Morning Muffin Hour or Lunch Hour Speaker.
You can also make a one-time donation to this campaign if would like to support it but are unable to host an event.
You can host your Coffee Break® anytime from September - December 2019.
The official kick-off date is September 20, 2019
Make your coffee count at McDonald’s in Gananoque on September 20, 2019

We will supply you with the coffee as well as promotional material.
We are able to promote all events hosted by businesses and corporations on our Facebook and Twitter pages. We invite everyone to take pictures and tag us in them or send them to us and we will share them on our Social media pages.
Here's what the Coffee Break campaign supports:
Adult Day Program – We currently run 10 per week throughout the County which offers a day of respite for Caregivers and a day of socialization and activation for the person with Dementia.
Education – We offer education sessions and workshops for interested groups, families, professionals, schools and Caregivers.
Support – We offer a wide range of support groups including; Individual, Family, Caregiver, Children with Parents Affected, Early Stage and Friends
Referral & Information – We have a resource lending library that is free for anyone to use, brochures and booklets with information on our organization as well as other community services, and send out a newsletter quarterly.
Weekend Respite – Families bring their loved one to our Smiths Falls location for the weekend (Friday at 4:00 pm – Monday at 2:30 pm) This is a home environment with professional staff. This gives the caregiver a much-needed break.
