This year's National Coffee Break® Day is on Thursday, September 20, 2018. Join hundreds of businesses, groups and individuals in the Niagara Region and host your own Coffee Break® anytime between September and December. Your help is needed to reach our 2018 goal of $85,000! This year's honourary chair is Wade Stayzer, Senior Vice President and Chief Member Experience Officer at Meridian Credit Union.
A big thank you to Barclay & Todd's for sponsoring all the coffee pouches for our Coffee Break kits!

What is a Coffee Break®?
The vision and inspiration of Niagara’s own 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.
How can I get more information?
An Alzheimer Coffee Break® is simple. We provide the kit, you provide the social environment and in turn your participation will ensure compassionate support for our clients in the years to come. Register today for your free Coffee Break kit which contains the promotional materials needed to advertise your event, a coin box and your first pot of coffee.
