Help us fill our Interview Room for the Homeless in Dublin with ICHH this Christmas
Babies are facing their first Christmas in emergency accommodation; children are eating their dinners from cardboard boxes on the street as we hurtle towards the worst homeless crisis faced by this country in living memory. For the past two years, our Dublin team have tried to provide some small comfort to those who are homeless by collecting Christmas shoeboxes for the Inner City Helping Homeless (ICHH). This year, they aim to fill their interview room and they need your help!
Here’s how you can get involved:
If you would like to become part of this challenge, please wrap a shoebox in Christmas paper, wrapping the lid and box separately as the contents will have to be checked for safety before being distributed, and mark it male or female. If your shoebox is for a child, then please mark the intended age group. For example, Boy Age 5-8.
If you could then drop your shoebox to our offices at Unit C1 Magna Business Park, Citywest, Dublin 24 on or before Wednesday 11th December as we attempt to fill our interview room for the ICHH. If you have a large number of shoeboxes, please contact us on 01 4690901 and we can arrange for collection. Please help make someone’s Christmas a little bit special this year by donating a filled shoebox. We need your help. Thank you!
