At The Brick, we know how meaningful it is to give back to the communities that support us. After all, we’re part of your neighbourhood too.
Our customers and employees tell us there’s nothing more important than the health and well-being of children. That’s why we’ve partnered with two national charities that support kids across the country: Breakfast for Learning™ and the Children’s Miracle Network®.
Brick by Brick and hand-in hand, we believe the lives of Canadian children can be made better through nutritious breakfasts and exceptional medical care.
The Brick is committed to supporting Breakfast for Learning and the Children’s Miracle Network through fundraising, awareness, donation matching and employee participation. When it comes to the success of the next generation, we can all make a difference.
It’s hard for a child to learn at school when all he or she can focus on is a growling stomach. Since 1992, Breakfast for Learning has been working with schools across Canada to help them start and operate programs that provide meals and snacks to at-risk children.
When kids go to class well-nourished, it improves their ability to learn and gives them the best chance of success in life.
With more than 500 million meals served to more than three million Canadian children since the program started, it’s clear that breakfast is more than a meal - it’s a foundation for the future.
Through comfort, treatment and hope, the Children’s Miracle Network touches more lives of sick and injured children and their families than any other children’s charity.
Whether a child is nursing a broken bone or facing a life-threatening disease, member hospitals are there to provide physical and emotional care for Canada’s most precious generation. By raising funds for local Children’s Miracle Network hospitals, doctors and nurses can create real miracles for children and their families thanks to the latest equipment and medical research.
And, with funds raised always directed to the member hospital closest to your community, local kids – like your neighbours and family – are finding the medical miracles they deserve.
Sharing our Brick family stories

The Brick is honoured to support Wounded Warriors Canada through fundraising and awareness campaigns.
The Brick’s most valuable asset is our employees. When our corporate, distribution and in-store staff want to support their communities, we want to support them.
That’s why we give financial, volunteer and in-kind support to an array of worthwhile associations, events and fundraisers across Canada. Since 1971, The Brick has donated millions of dollars with a focus on helping to improve the lives of Canadian children, Brick by Brick.
