The Ajax Legion donates $2500 to help fund the school’s Breakfast Club initiative

Every year, representatives from the Ajax Legion bring poppies during November for the students and staff at Bolton C. Falby Public School in Ajax.

Three years ago, while delivering poppies, Ajax Legion members Tom Hanna, Patricia Milne, and Jim Fowler thought about fundraising for the school, but weren’t sure what the school could use the funds for. So, they asked Conor Jinkinson, the school’s Principal.

Jinkinson immediately knew the funds would be best used in the school’s Breakfast Club.  

“Our Breakfast Club feeds 120 to 150 kids every day, so I knew it was the perfect opportunity to help fund that initiative,” explains Jinkinson.

For the past three years the Ajax Legion has been fundraising, and generously donating to the school’s Breakfast Club.

This year, on November 7th, the Legion donated a total of $2500. This is the most ever donated in the three years that the Legion has been helping to support the program.

Jinkinson notes, “The Breakfast Club ensures our students are ready to learn and start the day with a full belly. The Ajax Legion’s continual and significant contributions help to make that happen.”
