Buying breakfast can help families this Thursday

Ann Davis Transition Society aims to raise $10,000 with drive-through fundraiser

Ann Davis Transition Society is set to convert Chances Chilliwack to a drive-thru once again, with this Thursday’s Drive-Thru Breakfast.

All you have to do take part is pull up to the covered entrance of the gaming centre, at 8180 Young Road, and place your ‘order’. Volunteers will have bags of healthy breakfast items and business coupons at the ready, in support the various programs that make such a difference to the most vulnerable children and youth in our community.

This is the fourth annual Drive-Thru Breakfast, and they’ll be able to serve just over 500 breakfast bags. They’ll include Starbucks coffee, croissants from Chances, fruit from Hofstede’s, and an assortment of juice boxes, granola bars and organic oatmeal from sponsors including Superstore and Save-on Foods.

Breakfast will be between 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., Thursday, June 15. Breakfast is by donation, with a suggested minimum of $10 per breakfast (valued around $25). The goal of the breakfast is to raise $10,000 for Ann Davis Transition Society.

“My kids and I have benefited so much from Ann Davis Services,” says an anonymous client. “When no one else would help they provided a roof over our heads to keep me and my three kids safe, since then we have been able to have family counseling to get through the tough times of change and my two teens are involved with youth programs in the school and one-and-one counselling with Ann Davis counsellors. We are so thankful that they were there.”

It’s an important fundraiser for the organization, says Patti MacAhonic, executive director.

“We would like to invite the people of our community to be generous and understand that it is an important fundraiser for a wonderful cause and to remember that the donation makes a real difference for the kids that use our services,” saysMacAhonic.

This year, the organization or business who sends the most employees for breakfast will receive their first top ADTS breakfast supporter award plaque. People or organizations who make a donation of $250 or more will be you publicly recognized on live radio the day of the event. Arrange this beforehand by calling Samantha Hilliard at 604-792-2760, ext. 202, or email info@anndavis.org. All donations over $20 are eligible for a charitable tax receipt.
