Why support social enterprise?

by Trinity Jimenez

Why have a cup of Joe when you can have a cup of KLINK? We’ll tell you why; because KLINK is coffee with a purpose.

Being a social enterprise for the St. Leonard’s Society of Toronto, KLINK Coffee Inc. focuses especially on individuals coming out of the criminal justice system.

What is a social enterprise, you ask? In the simplest terms: “Social enterprises are businesses…  that are directly involved in the production and/or selling of goods and services for the blended purpose of generating income and achieving social, cultural, and/or environmental aims.” Social Enterprise Council of Canada

KLINK’s contribution in helping men and women rebuild their lives after returning home from prison is a mission that is being accomplished on a daily basis. Since the launch of the program, KLINK has assisted numerous individuals in creating resumes, receiving employment counselling, as well as with full time employment offers once the program is completed. In a nut shell, our purpose is to open doors of opportunity for those who don’t have the means to do so, and in that, maintaining happier and safer communities.

So remember,

DRINK KLINK. CHANGE LIVES.
