Ballyboden St.Enda’s are organizing a winter clothes appeal for the charity Inner City Helping Homeless (ICHH).
This is a non profit charity that was set up in 2013 as a result of the increased number of people sleeping rough around Dublin city and suburbs. They offer outreach services, case management, mental health supports, food distribution, clothes orders and other essential services and are operational 7 days a week 52 weeks a year.
One of the key services ICHH provide is the nightly outreach service which visit 120+ rough sleepers 7 days a week. There are 3 vans that cover the greater Dublin area providing hot drinks, light snacks, hot food, clothes, toiletries and sanitary essentials. As we approach the winter months the need for additional clothing and other essentials increases, and the current situation with Covid has significantly impacted the stocks.
Currently there is an urgent need for donations of male/female clothing including jackets, shoes, tops, jeans, track suit bottoms, socks, hats and gloves. While second hand clothing is ideal, for any donation of male/female underwear it needs to be new. Please have a look at the attached fliers for detailed list of items required.
For other essentials, any donation of body wipes, toothpaste, toothbrushes, roll on deodorant, shower gel and female sanitary products would be greatly appreciated.
Commencing this week we are asking for donations of any of the above items or clothing items on the attached fliers..
All donations can be dropped to the club Each Friday from 10am – 12 noon in the clubhouse or if preferred we can arrange collection.
It is hoped that we can deliver all donations to ICHH on Friday November 13th.
Thanking you in anticipation, and if you have any queries at all please do not hesitate to give Ken Giles a call on 0851743466
