Alzheimer's Coffee Break 2014

Cookies for Memories

A new spin on an annual fundraiser for the Chatham-Kent Alzheimer's Society - this year, Meadow Park in Chatham baked fresh cookies for sale to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society.

For several years, Meadow Park Chatham has been a dedicated participant in the annual coffee break with efforts to promote the services of the Alzheimer's Society and to raise awareness about the disease. This year, Program Director, Joanne Jones and the Coordinator of Volunteer Services and Resident Family Services Coordinator, Lydia Swant decided to sweeten the deal, by creating a fundraiser no one could resist!

Dozens of cookies were baked fresh for staff, residents, family members and community to purchase. The smell of homemade cookes make the program easy! At one point we were selling cookies right out of the oven and then ran out of cookies! Nothing compares to the smell of homemade chocolate chip cookies and oatmeal raisin cookies!

With their "Cookies for Memories" campaign, all of the cookies sold out! A total of $325 was raised for the Alzheimer's Society. You can view our presentation cheque to the Alzheimer's Society here!

"The Alzheimer's Society of Chatham-Kent really appreciates the support of the staff and residents at Meadow Park. "Cookies for Memories" was a truly unique idea which raised a substantial amount of money. All of these funds will remain in Chatham-Kent to enhance our programs and services. It is encouraging to know that so many people in our community understand the improatnce of the work we are doing. Thank you." -Marie Humphrey Admin/Events/Volunteer Coordinator, Alzheimer's Society Chatham-Kent
