When people like you invest their time and energy in volunteering, it means they’re strong enough to be able to reach out to those in need and caring enough to open their hearts. It means they have a lot within them to give. And you are one of these amazing individuals.
Day in and day out, you bring joy into our kids’ lives. They know you will be there to greet them, feed them, listen to them and support them. They know they can trust you. And that is the most precious gift of all.
You are the driving force behind the gradual changes we see every day in children and adolescents alike. The special attention you give them has a real and lasting impact on their school attendance and ability to focus in class, not to mention healthy eating habits, self-esteem and academic performance. Your commitment to them is an unconditional act of love – because nothing is more important to a child than knowing they mean something to someone else.
Factors such as household income, living environment, social network and education all have an influence a child’s growth and development. Sadly, these conditions are not always ideal. But we have the power to level the playing field by being there, every morning, and making a concrete contribution toward addressing inequality and injustice.
We are hugely indebted to YOU, our Breakfast Hero, for being a daily pillar of strength for the children of Breakfast Club of Canada. Thank you for being by our side and helping us pursue our dream of building a better, fairer world.
Yours in humble gratitude,
Daniel Germain Marie-Claude Bienvenue
President and Founder Executive Director
