Homeless Connect Perth is a one-day event where local businesses, community groups and service providers are brought together to assist those experiencing or at risk of homelessness.Run by Volunteering WA and the City of Perth, the event was established with the aim of providing homeless individuals with a path out of homelessness. Food, clothing, toiletries and toys are donated for the event, with additional services are provided to assist and also offer a little bit of pampering for guests on the day.Leaf Bean Machine has participated in Homeless Connect Perth since 2013, providing free Karvan Coffee for guests throughout the event.We were very lucky to have an army of bakers on hand this year, providing over 4000 biscuits and more than 20 slices to hand out with our coffee and tea. All baked good we generously donated by students and teachers at Penrhos College and Chisholm Catholic College as well as individual donations from the Foster & Arthur families.
Brad, Fleur and the Leaf Bean Machine team would like to thank everyone who donated their time and baking skills towards Homeless Connect.
