Do You Wish to Donate Your Unwanted Christmas Gifts?
We will take in your unwanted Chrismtas gifts and will pass them to Crosscare who will redistribute them this time next year to people living in their homeless services and family hub. These gifts may be left at the foot of our Christmas tree during the coming week until Monday 7th January.
Michael Mc Donagh on behalf of Crosscare thanks parishioners in the Archdiocese of Dublin for their extraordinary generosity at the start of the month (December) when an incredible 60 tonnes of non-perishable food was collected for distribution to families in need at Christmas. Archbishop Diarmuid Martin launched the appeal on the first weekend in December. As a result, Crosscare was able to distributed hampers which consisted of 24,000 meals to those who need it most. 120 volunteers gave their time to sort the food collected from parishes in Crosscare’s main foodbank in Glasnevin, ensuring hampers were delivered to families on time.
