101CAFFE’ for City Angels: when coffee can warm many hearts

In such a delicate social and health moment, voluntary associations, doctors, researchers and nurses are doing a very important job to deal with emergency, treating sick people and concretely helping those who are in difficulty: from shopping to purchasing drugs, from walking with the dog or for psychological support.
Many 101CAFFE’ stores are giving their contribution to local associations, demonstrating an even stronger team spirit.
As 101CAFFE’ headquarter we support City Angels association that, among several humanitarian and solidarity activities, manages three centers in Milan for those who do not have a permanent home.

We decided to donate our coffee to these volunteer “Angels” who offer assistance to homeless and who have transformed the daytime association venue into “permanent” places for those who should stay at home but do not have home”, says Umberto Gonnella, CEO and founder of 101CAFFE’.
City Angels is a voluntary association founded in Milan, in 1994, by Mario Furlan, university professor of motivation and personal growth and founder of Wilding, instinctive self-defense.
After being registered in the non-profit organization in 1999 and awarded with the highest Milanese honor, the Ambrogino d’Oro, for the second time in 2008, new Angels offices were born in the following years: in Rome, Turin, Varese, Parma, Brescia.
To date, 18 offices are located in Italy and one in Switzerland, in Lugano, all united by the same humanitarian spirit. In some cities the main activity is assistance to homeless; in others it is the prevention and contrast of street crime, in collaboration with law enforcement.
It is a 360 degree voluntary service that adapts to the needs of the individual city. The “Angels” can be recognized by the blue beret, symbol of the UN peace-keeping forces and by the red jacket, the color of the emergency, a safe point of reference for citizens.
Donating a good coffee is a small gesture of solidarity that has to do not only with coffee itself, but also with the memory of daily normality, which helps make us feel more reassured. A gesture that is good not only for those who receive it, but also for those who do it”, added U.Gonnella.

City Angels need all of us: you can support the association with a small contribution, to be paid on City Angels Italy ODV bank account: IBAN IT13Q0306909606100000120860.
Even a small sum, today more than ever, makes a big difference.
