Become a Coffee Break Host and make difference in your community.

How do you take your Coffee Break? The Alzheimer Society of Windsor & Essex County’s (ASWE) annual Coffee Break® fundraiser campaign kicks off September 1st and continues until November 30, 2016.

This year the goal is to surpass last year’s record of 100 host sites and raise $30,000 to help support local individuals with dementia and their care partners so they are able to live well and independently for as long as possible.

“Every year the amount of individuals and families that request our services grows. To have counselling, support, and respite programs available locally is vital to our community. We need funds to keep them active and what better way to draw attention to this need than to have this conversation over cups of coffee?”  – Sally Bennett Olczak, CEO of the Alzheimer Society of Windsor & Essex County

What is Coffee Break®?

A Coffee Break® is any social activity where hosts offer coffee in exchange for a donation to the Alzheimer Society. Coffee Break® can be customized to your friends, family or organization – your coffee break might last a few hours or a few weeks! ASWE provides the coffee, cups and lids, stir sticks, sugar, promotional materials, and even a volunteer to help out and answer questions if you’d like. All you have to do is brew! 

Is it only limited to coffee? 
Not at all! In fact, some Coffee Break® hosts add a bake sale, raffle, auction, or even make it a milk and cookies break for your younger attendees. We also offer paper coffee cup cutouts to businesses for customers to purchase and proudly display their names in support of the Society.
