About Coffee Break

Coffee Break


Every day 67 percent of Canadians take a moment out of their day to enjoy a cup of coffee. Throughout September and October together with friends and treat yourself to a cup of coffee in support of the Alzheimer Society of Newfoundland and Labrador by joining the annual nationwide Alzheimer Coffee Break®.

When you host a Coffee Break in your community, you help raise much-needed funds for local programs and services for the over 8,666 Newfoundlanders and Labradorians with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias as well as their caregivers. Your support makes a difference in their lives!

Join us for Coffee Break® and make your coffee count!

How do I host an event?

You can make your event big or small, public or private, at home, at work or in the community and offer coffee in exchange for a donation; it is as simple as that! You can also offer tea and juice as well as coffee, and add cookies or pastries to help increase donations.

Register to host your Coffee Break®. We'll send you everything you need.

Where do I host a Coffee Break®?

Coffee Breaks can be held anywhere: offices, schools, retirement homes, businesses, community centers or in your living room – wherever coffee can be served and a donation collected!

How can my retail business take part?

This complimentary kit includes Coffee Break® cut-outs to help raise funds and awareness. Just add the cut-out UPC code to your inventory, and invite your customers to add a donation to their purchase. Your customers can personalize their cut-out, and you may choose to display them in your store, which raises even more awareness! After the month is over, tally up your total and send your donation in.

Can my organization become a corporate sponsor or host?

Absolutely! We’d love to talk about your sponsorship ideas and interest in hosting! Contact our events planner to start the conversation. 

Coffee Break is a simple and meaningful way to involve your employees in a good cause and keep their corporate engagement levels high. Encourage your colleagues, co-workers and suppliers to get involved and support the Society by hosting a Coffee Break®.
