Hope in the Darkness.
Homelessness is a very real and relevant topic for all of us today. Unfortunately, it is an issue that is affecting our friends and families every day. We think that a really important lesson to teach children is that, if we are in a position to help others, we should.
We sent out a request to our families to donate snack foods, drinks, and fresh fruit and vegetables so that we could donate them to the Hope in the Darkness charity group. This group meets at the GPO at the weekend and hands out hot meals and food to homeless people and families. Everybody who works with this charity group is a volunteer.
Yet again we were overwhelmed by the generosity of all of our families in the school, we had over 10 crates of food that was donated by our parents and children. Carambola our lunch company also kindly donate 100 snack bags and 100 water bottles. Gemma drove in to Dublin on a Saturday night and gave them our donations. She saw first- hand how far your generosity went towards homeless families and individuals. Thank you to everybody who donated, our small contributions resulted in a Huge amount of food.
