Christmas food drive for St. Patrick’s Parish Soup Kitchen
Our Greenschools Committee is appealing for food items that can be donated to St Patrick’s Parish Soup Kitchen during the Christmas season. This is linked in with the Global Goal “Zero Hunger” and what better place to begin than within our local area?
Why a Reverse Advent Calendar? Because instead of taking a treat from a box each day, you add an item to a box and, at the end, donate the box to The Soup Kitchen. This will provide food to families in Dundalk, that are in crisis over the Christmas period.
The closing date for donations is Thursday the 15th of December. Donations can be brought in any day between now and then. Any non-perishable food is acceptable but there are some suggestions below. A special area will be set up outside Mrs Kirby’s office for donations. You can bring in one item, or many items, as every donation is very welcome.
