If you have ever visited a Piccolo Me cafe, then you will have been “Piccolo’d” in one way or another. This time, it’s for a cause.
The renowned franchise Piccolo Me, owned by brothers Charlie and Roy El Hachem, partnered with Steps of Hope for their annual fundraising initiative.
The coffee and café connoisseurs set out to raise $10,000 with an initiative called “Piccolo for a Cause” to help victims of the Beirut Blast, the largest non-nuclear explosion to occur in the 21st century.
In a single week, with 11 of their participating locations across NSW they did just that.
Between 24th – 30th August 2020, the Lebanese-family owned business generously donated:
- $1 from every hot beverage
- $5 dollar from every 1kg coffee bag sold
- $5 from all online gift boxes
- In store donations: Steps of Hope donation tins
This is a cause close to the Australian community’s heart as more than 230,000 Australians also have Lebanese heritage and have retained strong community ties with Lebanon.
For those struggling like our fellow Lebanese community, a little can go a long way and make a world of difference.
