Coffee Morning fundraiser for Matthew’s House is postponed

Abbotsford program delays annual event due to COVID-19 pandemic

The annual Coffee Morning fundraiser for Matthew’s House in Abbotsford has been postponed until a later date due to the COVID-19 crisis.

The event was originally scheduled to run from April 27 to May 1. It involves hosts gathering friends, family and colleagues for coffee and treats, with donations collected for Matthew’s House, which provides care for youth ages 16 to 24 who live with complex care needs.

Businesses, schools and private homes have typically been the venues where Coffee Morning has been hosted.

Starbucks supports the event each year by supplying free coffee for hosts who sign up in advance.

Coffee Morning for Matthew’s House has taken place annually since 2014, raising more than $60,000.

“We are so grateful for the support of this generous community and we know that we’ll hold Coffee Morning again; we just don’t know when,” says Sarah De Klein, resource development coordinator for Matthew’s House.

Matthew’s House is operated by Communitas Supportive Care Society. For more information or to make a donation, visit mattshouse.ca/
