Giving back to the community one coffee at a time
Briner feels that it is important to fulfil its obligation towards corporate social responsibility and support the local community. Coinciding with this, we decided to use our recently installed coffee machine as a catalyst in our efforts to give back. The concept is simple, each time one of our staff use the coffee machine they donate a gold coin into a collection tin. For every $500 we collect, we donate the money to charity.
Briner’s first donation was made to WAYYS, a charity who work to aid the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless within the Greater Dandenong area. As we are moving to this municipality soon, Briner felt it was appropriate to align with a local charity, and the incredible contribution that WAYYS makes to its community is something that we admire.
It is WAYSS core purpose to assist individuals who are homeless or at risk of homelessness to improve their life circumstances by providing access to stable, affordable and safe accommodation. WAYSS exists to serve those in the community who are experiencing difficulties by offering support and advocacy to alleviate homelessness and re-establish connections and links in the community. WAYSS will provide a voice for awareness of homelessness issues and lobby for any structural change required to address homelessness.
