Toronto, Ontario — UniglassPlus and VitroPlus just closed out its spring fundraising campaign with the Breakfast Club of Canada, announcing Tuesday that the efforts of the two companies helped provide nearly 170,000 breakfasts to kids across the country.
The two Uniban subsidiaries managed to raise a total of $84,818, making good on its commitment to donate 12 breakfasts per windshield repair completed between mid-February and mid-April, and more than doubling the total amount raised during spring 2022’s fundraising campaign.
“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 Uniban president, Maurice Filion.
“We are honored to work closely with Breakfast Club of Canada and support their mission of nourishing children to ensure they reach their full potential.”
Uniban’s press release points out that about one-third of Canadian children go to school on an empty stomach, and therefore lack some of the nutrition and energy they need for learning as best they can.
“Our organization is grateful for the significant support that UniglassPlus, VitroPlus, and their respective communities have provided us,” said Natalie Charette, director of major gifts and planned giving at 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 be putting themselves to the test again this fall, as the pair have already committed to donating eight breakfasts for every rust treatment completed between Sept. 1 and Oct. 31.
