A couple of hours of giving can make a real difference to someone’s day. It’s the simple, normal things taken for granted, that we like to give. A friendly smile to a new customer, a cheeky extra piece of bacon to surprise one of our regulars or even some toiletries. They don’t expect it but we hope it brings a bit of joy for them.Because for a couple of hours every morning, we want our customers to feel they’re starting their day just like the rest of us. We know we mightn’t change their circumstances. But if we can help give a good start every day, then as an Early Bird Cafe good starter, we know we’ve helped.
The Early Bird Cafe had its beginnings serving breakfast from Scots Church Wynyard in 2012, and grew so much that by mid 2014 City Community Care Incorporated (ABN 60547256906) was established, and became a registered charity on 23 October 2014. It’s endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR). City Community Care Incorporated is covered by Item 1 of the table in section 30-15 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.
The Early Bird Cafe moved to its current premises in 2018 with the support of St Stephens Uniting Church. We only operate in NSW.
City Community Care Incorporated manages the financial and administrative needs of the Early Bird Cafe through its Management Committee. It does this with the generous support of corporations, small businesses, community groups and an amazing bunch of volunteers.
Our mission is to assist the disadvantaged of Sydney, regardless of whether they are homeless or not.
