What is Coffee Break

Coffee Break® is one of the Alzheimer Society of Ontario's biggest annual fundraisers, where friends, co-workers, and customers gather in communities across the province to raise funds for their local Alzheimer Societies, such as the Alzheimer Society of Thunder Bay.

The money raised stays in our community to help support local programs and services. Hold a Coffee Break event for a day, a week, or a whole month! Get creative- have a bbq, a movie night, dress down day, or a give a portion of your coffee sales! Coffee Break runs from September 1st to October 30th (to be eligible for prizes)!

Host a Coffee Break

Hosting a Coffee Break® can be as simple as brewing a pot of coffee at home or at work and inviting friends, family, or colleagues to enjoy a cup. A Coffee Break can be large, small, simple, or elaborate, and can be held anywhere.

  1. Contact the Society and register your Coffee Break Event
  2. Obtain your Coffee Break Kit (provided to you by the Society)
  3. Invite your friends/family/coworkers/neighbours to your event! Advertise by personalizing your posters provided to you in your Kit! Let people know through email, phone, or Facebook!
  4. Use your creativity- consider incorporating your Coffee Break with another event such as a Pie Auction, Bake Sale, Dress Down Day, Yard Sale, BBQ, Game Night, or simply offer homemade desserts and baking. Not a coffee fan? Consider serving juice, tea or smoothies instead of coffee!


Your impact

Did you know? Over 2,900 individuals are currently living with dementia in the district of Thunder Bay, and this number is expected to double in the next 10 years. Supporting the 2020 Coffee Break is an easy way for you to make your coffee count and ensure that the Alzheimer Society of Thunder Bay can continue to provide much needed services to local people affected by Alzheimer’s disease, services such as, support groups, individual and family counselling, education, and the Minds in Motion Program. We are proud to say that all of the proceeds from our fundraising events stay local in our community to support individuals and families affected by dementia.
