Annual Santa’s Breakfast in Cumberland a fundraising event for CCSS

The Cumberland Community Schools Society (CCSS) invites community members of all ages to Santa’s Breakfast. This beloved annual event includes a pancake breakfast, arts & crafts, wreath making, a silent auction, and visits with Santa.

This year marks the 11th anniversary of Santa’s Breakfast, a CCSS fundraiser. CCSS is a registered charity that exists to facilitate lifelong learning, health, and wellbeing, through community partnerships and collaborative use of school and community resources. Proceeds from this event support CCSS’s efforts that provide free after-school programming, a healthy lunch program, drop-in youth centre at Cumberland Community School, and continuing education for adults.

“Over the past five years our school has seen a 25 per cent increase in enrolment, resulting in increased demand for our programs,” said CCSS executive director, Sue Loveless. “The success of this event will help to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of our growing community.”

CCSS thanks sponsors Cumberland Dental Centre, Sitka Silviculture, and Cloutier Matthews, along with the many other local businesses who are supporting the event.

Santa’s Breakfast takes place Sunday, Dec. 2, 8:30- 11:30 a.m. at the Cumberland Recreation, 2665 Dunsmuir Avenue. Entry is by donation.
