When was the last time your cup of coffee changed a life? Next week it can. Take a coffee break at OTR from September 23 to 29 and help the homeless.
That’s the message from AnglicareSA, which today officially launched its Coffee Break partnership with OTR aiming to raise $50,000 for homelessness services.
OTR will donate $1 to AnglicareSA for every C Coffee purchased with the OTR App between 23 and 29 September.
AnglicareSA CEO Peter Sandeman said that the simple act of buying a coffee will make a big difference.
“Homelessness is a major driver of the work that AnglicareSA does across its services and programs,” said Peter.
“It’s a growing problem in Adelaide where we have seen a 44 percent increase in the number of people sleeping rough in the past year alone.
“Our services, which include emergency assistance and poverty relief, housing support, financial counselling and family mediation, make a big difference in the lives of those we serve, but we can’t do this alone.
“It is wonderful to have a commercial partner such as OTR support our work with the homeless and those at risk of homelessness.
“I encourage all coffee-drinking South Australians to get behind this initiative and make their coffee count.”
OTR Chief Operating Officer Peter Piliouras said the Coffee Break initiative gives everyone the opportunity to support the vital work of AnglicareSA.
“The homelessness services provided by AnglicareSA are relied on by thousands of South Australians,” said Mr Piliouras.
“It is important to OTR that we support our community and encourage others to do the same. OTR is proud to partner with AnglicareSA on their Coffee Break campaign.
“The simple act of buying a local barista-made C Coffee with your OTR App next week will generate much-needed funding for AnglicareSA homelessness programs. It is an easy way for South Australians to make a big difference to the lives of those who need it most.”
The OTR App can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play. C Coffee is located at 110 OTR sites across metro and regional South Australia.
