$405,000 for the Breakfast Club of Canada

,

National Bank and the Breakfast Club of Canada recently treated the children of Harfang-des-Neiges school in Pierrefonds to a wholesome breakfast accompanied by music performed by the musicians of the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal.

The Bank also took this opportunity to reveal the results of its 9th fundraising campaign for the Breakfast Club of Canada.

$405,000 raised during the 9th fundraising campaign
In 2013, sales of the exclusive set of four colourful magnets in Bank branches across Canada helped raise $405,000.

Since it first became involved in this cause in 2005, National Bank has raised nearly $3.8 million for the Breakfast Club of Canada.

An auditorium in the gym
In attendance for the National Bank déjeuners symphoniques at Harfang-des-Neiges school, Lise-Anne Amyot, Vice-President – Brand and Client Experience, gave to each student a set of four magnets, and presented a cheque of $5,000 to Harfang-des-Neiges school.

This amount will be used to improve the school’s portable stage. Adding a set of lights and curtains will help transform the gym into an auditorium, thereby enabling students to discover the world of music and its many benefits.

2.5 millions breakfasts and 3,500 volunteers in 2013
The involvement of National Bank and the contribution of the thousands of donors who purchased the exclusive set of 4 magnets help the Breakfast Club of Canada maintain its services in existing clubs, and extend the scope of its mandate to as many children as possible. This organization serves 18,000 children across Quebec on a daily basis. Last year, 2.5 million breakfasts were provided by 3,500 volunteers in Quebec.
