Village Bakehouse are once again participating in CafeSmart this August 3rd, with $1 from every cupcake and every coffee sold will be donated, as well as $2.50 from every 4pk of cupcakes to the cause.
There will be a donation box set up in the store for additional donations and the store and team will be decked out in yellow for the day!
CafeSmart unites the community over your favourite brew to help fun local homeless service for just a $1 from every coffee sold at participating cafes.
Adam Robinson, CEO of StreetSmart Australia says CafeSmart is reflection of a concerned Australian community wanting to do something.
“We know that on any given night 115,000 people are homelessness, and that number is likely to be much higher. The Australian Institute of Social Welfare research tells us as many as 261 people are turned away every day because homeless services just cannot cope. The current crisis is the outcome of poor decisions on housing, social security, mental health, and the basic protections of the social safety net, and it will take serious work to recover"
This year, StreetSmart Australia aims to put $300,000 in new funding back into the sector.
