About President's Choice Children's Charity:

President’s Choice Children’s Charity (PCCC) was founded in 2000 and aims to help kids who struggle with childhood hunger or have disabilities and require specialized equipment or therapy. PCCC is a granting charity – all program costs consisting of donations to other organizations and people in need. It has two major granting programs: Nutrition and Special Needs Assistance.

To fight childhood hunger, President’s Choice Children’s Charity’s Nutrition program funds two charities: Breakfast for Learning and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada. With PCCC funding, both charities direct Childhood Nutrition Grants to schools and organizations across Canada. PCCC’s Nutrition grants supported 2,139 childhood nutrition programs in 2016, and served 3.1 million breakfasts to 449,504 children.

President’s Choice Children’s Charity supports children with disabilities through its Special Needs Assistance granting program. PCCC grants money to families who require specialized equipment and services for their disabled child. The charity served 3,789 children in 2016 through personal grants to families. With these grants, PCCC paid for 26,300 hours of therapy and 320 children received home/vehicle accessibility modifications.

President’s Choice Children’s Charity receives annual donations from Loblaw Companies that cover administration and operation costs. With this support, PCCC claims that every dollar donated goes to helping kids through its granting activities.
