Cafe2U operators gave out free coffees to fire fighters

To show their support during last week's bushfires.

Cafe2U operators showed their support to the communities that were affected by the bushfires last week by giving out free coffees.

Franchisees David and Marina Rowe of Cafe2U Emu Plains shared that they took this opportunity to help out the community in whatever way they could.

"We were in the heart of everything that was going on, so it was a dire situation that we witnessed first hand.

“We offered free coffees to all of the people helping out with the fire fighting initiative, as well as to those who have been directly affected. We also donated $1 from each coffee to the victims of bushfires and have a collection tin where people can offer donations to the Rural Fire Service and the victims.

“We also made signs to thank the fire fighters and let them know how grateful we are for their efforts” said Marina Rowe.

Likewise, local Penrith operator Chris Psathas and Steve Payk of Cafe2U Windsor stayed at the base camps in Penrith and UWS Campus in Hawkesbury to serve coffees to the fire fighters and support staff who have been working through the disaster.

“I am glad I was able to give something back to the firefighters and support teams who have been working tirelessly through this terrible period. Being able to offer my services to make these guys and gals days’ a bit more pleasant, is humbling for me,” said Steve Payk.
