What is Coffee Break®?
Coffee Break® is the Alzheimer Society's major nationwide annual fundraiser where friends, co-workers and customers gather in communities across Canada to raise funds for local Alzheimer Societies. Participants at these events make a donation in exchange for a cup of coffee. The money raised stays in our province to help support local programs and services.
Large corporations, small businesses, hospitals, schools, service organizations, health-care facilities andprivate residences are just a few examples of ideal places to host coffee breaks. You can organize an event, large or small in your community, workplace or home.
Coffee Break® will take place across Newfoundland and Labrador kicking off on Thursday Sept. 15, 2011 but can encompass the whole months of September, October and even into November.
Add Coffee Cup Cut-Outs to your Coffee Break!
Coffee cup cut-outs were designed in conjunction with our Coffee Break® to recognize the donations made by participants. These coffee cup cut-outs can be sold for $1 in grocery stores, specialty stores, or anywhere a Coffee Break® is held. The bar codes on the back of each cut -out make it easy to keep cut-outs at checkout counters!
Do I have to hold a Coffee Break® in order to sell cut-outs?
No! While many companies use the Coffee Break® to launch cut-out sales, we have had such great success with the program that many stores choose to sell cut-outs year round or for the months of September/October!
How do I get cut-outs?
If your company or employer would like to participate in the cut-out program in conjunction with a Coffee Break® or as a separate campaign, please fill out our online registration form where you can indicate how many cut outs you’d like us to send!
