UniglassPlus and VitroPlus, industry leaders in automotive glass repair and replacement, raised over $80,000 for Breakfast Club of Canada during their spring auto glass program.
The annual fundraiser began in the middle of February and ran through the middle of April. This year’s promotion allowed UniglassPlus and VitroPlus owners from across the country to donate 12 nutritious breakfasts for every windshield repair and replacement performed in their facilities. This donation number is doubled from last year’s push. After raising nearly $40,000 with this Spring fundraiser in 2022, the network of owners wanted to dream bigger this year and more than double the amount of money raised with a total sum of $84,818. This charitable donation equates to nearly 170,000 breakfasts that will give children across Canada the energy to learn.
Fundraiser is growing
“I am elated to see this fundraiser grow year over year and to witness the superb level of commitment from our owners and community,” said Maurice Filion, President, Uniban. “We are honoured to work closely with Breakfast Club of Canada and support their mission of nourishing children to ensure they reach their full potential.”
In Canada, one in three children is at risk of going to school on an empty stomach. Research shows that a nutritious breakfast not only energizes the body and brain for learning but also helps improve eating quality, physical activity and self-esteem.
“Our organization is grateful for the significant support that UniglassPlus, VitroPlus, and their respective communities have provided us,” shared Natalie Charette, Director, Major Gifts & Planned Giving, Breakfast Club of Canada. “This act of generosity will continue to fuel our ultimate goal of providing a breakfast for every child, every day.”
UniglassPlus and VitroPlus will continue to support Breakfast Club of Canada with a similar initiative this fall. From Friday, September 1 through Tuesday, October 31, every rust protection treatment will benefit Breakfast Club of Canada by providing eight breakfasts to children.
