Every day in Ireland thousands of families struggle to put food on the table. This year in particular we know that there is a great pressure on people.
However, this Christmas we would like to continue to help in a small way by having a food appeal on Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th December.
We ask the children from each class to bring in the food items listed below. It is entirely up to each family how much they would like to contribute. Every item counts.
We would particularly like to see the children themselves contributing towards the appeal. This can be achieved through the use of pocket money or taking part in the choosing and shopping for the item.
This year we are working with the following charity:
St. Vincent de Paul (Athy Branch).
The transition year students in Ardscoil na Tríondóide in Athy make hampers for families in the Athy and surrounding areas conjunction with St Vincent de Paul. Our food appeal donations will go to making up these hampers this year.
If you or a family you know would benefit from a hamper this year, please contact Ms. Goff – email@example.com. Please be advised that any enquiry will be handled discreetly and in the strictest of confidence.
