Alzheimer Society Coffee Break fundraiser

Thanks to the AHS faculty, staff, and students, and everyone who attended the "Coffee Break" fundraising event on September 18!

Your generosity helped MAREP and the Alzheimer Society of Kitchener-Waterloo raise $466.46 for the local Alzheimer Society chapter. This annual fundraising initiative helps to support the programs and services provided by the Alzheimer KW to persons living with dementia and their care partners in our community.

"Coffee Break" at the Fireplace Lounge in LHS with Lisa Loiselle, Jessica Luh Kim, Jennifer Gillies, and Darla Fortune.

Jennifer Gillies, formerly MAREP staff and now the Executive Director of Alzheimer Society of Kitchener-Waterloo and Cambridge, dropped in to show her support. Thank you, Jennifer, for your effort in cultivating and maintaining partnerships in the community for dementia care!
