Boucherville – December 20th, 2022 –
Breakfast Club of Canada just marked 20 years of partnership with Costco warehouses, one of its main and long trusted support. Over the last two decades, Costco has been making sure to bring awareness and contribute to the health and education of youth and contributed more than 18 million dollars towards the Club’s ultimate goal: breakfast for every child, every day.
“Breakfast Club of Canada is very fortunate to rely on dedicated partners like Costco who understand the importance of a healthy and nutritious breakfast for students” said Judith Barry, Co-Founder and Director, Government Relations at Breakfast Club of Canada. “With the major increase in the number of schools supported over the past two years and the significant impact that inflation is having on operations, the support of major partner is more important than ever.”
Costco warehouses and their associates showed their ongoing generosity by joining Breakfast Club of Canada’s annual back-to-school campaign for the 15th year in a row. After the 10 days campaign across the country and thanks to employee’s dedication, close to 1.4 million was raised highlighting the power of this partnership to make a real difference and ensure children can reach their full potential and can look forward to a brighter future.
“Every child in Canada should have access to a nutritious breakfast. Costco Canada is proud to partner with Breakfast Club of Canada to make this reality. Over the last 20 years, our employees and customers have supported this mission and we look forward to continuing our partnership for years to come” Gino Dorico, Senior Vice-President & General Manager at Costco.
