West Island Community Shares is set to launch its annual campaign over the most important meal of the day. The breakfast launch is at Les 3 Brasseurs in Pointe-Claire, Thursday from 7 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.

WICS supports 40 local charities which offer help on a number of fronts, be it supporting a family living with cancer or mental illness or helping troubled youth and people struggling with substance abuse.

Corporate donations cover WICS’s operating costs which means 100 per cent of donations go to the groups it supports.

WICS is recognized by Imagine Canada’s Standards Program. The program gives accreditation to charities that have demonstrated excellence in governance and financial transparency as well as solid staff management and volunteer engagement.

Since 1998, WICS has raised more than $12 million for its partner groups, offering them recurring support which allows the groups a measure of financial stability.

Les 3 Brasseurs is located at 46A Brunswick Blvd. Tickets cost $15. To reserve and/or donate, call 514-695-8694, ext. 106 or visit www.communityshares.ca.
