Our Community, Our Commitment
A similar fundraiser on a Sunday in September sees all of the revenue from our No. 2 Breakfast goes to the Terry Fox Run. It is held on the same day as the Terry fox Run each fall, we offer the option that if you can’t run for the cause you can come in and eat for the cause.
We also cook meals for Camp Quality, which puts on a summer camp for children battling cancer. We donate to many churches, playgrounds, legions and the Freedom Riders. The Aktion Club (a service club for adults living with disabilities) and the Laurentian Swim Team each hold a fundraiser car wash on the property to support their programs. We have donated coffee cups to support the Maison Vale Hospice, and collect can foods for the Edgar Burton Food Drive.
We are considered at ticket outlet, supporting cultural events in our community. We support some larger events such as Cinefest, the Northern Lights Festival Boreal, as well as small cultural or community events.
We also work with local school boards to take on co-op students, and we work with the March of Dimes, YMCA, Job Connect and the Vocational Centre to help disadvantaged people learn skills that will help them find permanent jobs.
We support local artists by allowing them to display and sell their work on the restaurant walls. In addition to beautifying our place of business, the sale of the artwork provides a source of income for the artists.
Gloria’s is a proud member of our community and we are proud to give back to the city that has given us so much.
