Elgin-St. Thomas 

Coffee Break

Monday, October 17, 2011

Adult Department, St. Thomas Public Library, Elgin Mall

Once again, the library will be hosting an Alzheimer Society Coffee Break on Monday, October 17, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Adult Department of the St. Thomas Public Library, Elgin Mall location. We’ll be serving Higgins & Burke Gourmet Organic Coffee – Rainforest Blend.

Coffee is by donation – $1, $2, $5, whatever you like! Donations of $10 or more will receive a tax receipt.

Coffee Break is one of the main annual fundraising and awareness events of the Alzheimer Society Elgin-St. Thomas. The funds raised in Elgin County stay in Elgin County to support their programs and services. In Elgin County alone, there are over 1,200 reported cases and the society knows that for every person with dementia, it will affect 10-12 others. The mission of the Alzheimer’s Society of Elgin-St. Thomas is to optimize the quailty of life of persons with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and their caregivers. This is achieved by providing education, support, awareness, information, advocacy, and funding for research.

We hope you can find a few minutes to grab a cup of coffee in the morning or afternoon and make a donation (big or small!) to a worthy cause.
