Social with a Purpose® is the rebranded name of the fall fundraiser Coffee Break®
Social with a Purpose® is a do-it yourself fundraiser that promotes the importance of socializing and building strong positive relationships in the community, even while staying physically apart. As social distancing became a part of our daily routines, we began to understand the overwhelming feelings of loneliness that people living with dementia experience in their normal, day-to-day lives. Services that Alzheimer Society provides help to minimize these feelings.
Did You Know?
Our local SSM Alzheimer Society must fundraise over $400,000.00 each year to provide essential services, which have been adapted and have continued throughout Covid-19. By donating $30.00, a person living with dementia and their care partner will be able to attend an 8 week session of Minds in Motion®, which is a vital program that provides physical exercise, social interaction and brain stimulation activities. This program and other services have been shown to help delay admittance into long term care.
Over the last 4 years SSM Bondar has helped raised over $5,000. This year Covid-19 has made our event go virtual. We are hoping that your generous donation will help the local Sault Ste Marie Alzheimer Society reach it’s goal.
You have made a difference! Over 400 host sites participated in the 2019 Coffee Break®! Your generosity helped raise over $73,000.00 which stayed local to help provide much needed services. Please help us continue to improve the quality of life of those in our community who are affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. With your continuous support, you are helping provide local families with virtual services such as family support & counselling, recreation therapy, education and the Minds in Motion® program.
