EARL + CafeSmart – Action Against Homelessness

With our seven stores being located across the CBD, we are reminded daily that homelessness is an unfortunate reality for many Melburnians.  It’s hard to know how to help.

Enter StreetSmart.

With initiatives such as CafeSmart, DineSmart and RunSmart, StreetSmart’s point of difference as a charitable organisation is that 100% of the donations received from the public go toward helping homelessness.  All operational costs are all covered by sponsor and philanthropic donations.

Wih donations received, StreetSmart support local, smaller organisations who are embedded in our communities, delivering critical and often innovative responses to community needs.

Supporting StreetSmart is a no-brainer for EARL.

We’re proud to be supporting the CafeSmart initiative on the 4th of August for the third year running.  Along with other cafes across the country, we will donate $1 from every coffee sold this Friday to support StreetSmart’s amazing work.

In addition, we will have donation boxes on all our counters so after you’ve paid for your coffee, consider dropping the change into the box to support a very worthy cause.

See you on Friday where you have every reason to make it a mulitple-coffee day!
