Piccolo Me supports Beirut blast victims with fundraising campaign

The chain aims to raise $10,000 in one week.

Cafe Corp-owned Piccolo Me is calling on NSW customers to raise funds for a campaign aimed to support families affected by the recent blast in Beirut, Lebanon weeks ago.

The ‘Piccolo for A Cause’ campaign aims to raise $10,000 in one week by donating $1 from every Piccolo latte and hot drink sold, $5 from every bag of coffee beans sold, $5 from every gift box sold and via tip jars to Steps of Hope donation boxes.

The Lebanese-owned family run business and franchisor chose Steps of Hope as the charity of choice in their annual fundraising initiative to help victims of the Beirut explosion rebuild their lives.

Steps of Hope is an Australian-based, non-profit organisation run by a team of volunteers on the ground in Lebanon geared to identify individuals and families affected by the incident, which was caused by the detonation of nearly 3,000 tonnes of unsecured ammonium nitrate at Beirut's port.
