Buy Coffee, Help the Homeless with CafeSmart

Fri 5th August, 2016
Various cafes
Your morning coffee can help homeless people in your community.

When CafeSmart returns on Friday August 5, participating cafes around the country will donate $1 from each coffee sold to a local homeless charity.

What’s different about CafeSmart, which is now in its sixth year, is 100 per cent of donations are distributed to grassroots organisations in the local area of the participating cafe. This means you’re directly supporting your immediate community.

Last year CafeSmart raised $135,000. The money was used to provide essentials – such as meals, showers and laundry facilities. It was also distributed to youth services, used to assist refugees and given to post-release prisoner programs.
