JLL Canada offices across the country have worked together to raise $103,000 for Breakfast Club of Canada during its month-long fundraiser.
The real estate firm’s staff held bowling and basketball tournaments to raise funds for the charity which helps ensure that children have access to a healthy morning meal before school, in an environment that nurtures their self-esteem and confidence.
JLL Canada has been supporting the charity since 2015 and has raised more than $458,000 in that time.
"I am extremely proud of JLL's commitment to support Breakfast Club of Canada's mission to help children reach their full potential," said Vanessa Lester, National Director of Marketing at JLL Canada. "I would like to extend our organization's sincere gratitude to our clients who supported us in this great cause."
Operating from coast to coast, Breakfast Club of Canada helps feed more than 243,000 students every day in 1,809 schools.
"At Breakfast Club of Canada, we feel extremely privileged to have partners such as JLL Canada who cares enough about children's well-being to create a whole Charity Month and put together four fundraisers to have a great impact in their communities. In raising funds and awareness for the children's right and need for a nutritious breakfast, we can all together hope to someday feed every child so they can realize their full potential," said Tommy Kulczyk, General Manager, Breakfast Club of Canada.
