Giving Back – Action for Homelessness

With Christmas just around the corner and so many without roofs over their heads I thought it would be nice to put together a few essentials for those who are homeless. I contacted PATH Portlaoise action to homelessness and they will accept anything that we can collect.

There are two ways to help. Firstly you can purchase some items from the list provided below and drop them off to the Portarlington Community Centre, there will be a large box in the foyer/reception area, which will be in place tomorrow.

Or you can donate money using the link below. I have set up a Go Fund Me page and any donations, small or large, will be used to buy supplies and donated to the amazing volunteers at PATH. The supplies will be donated on the 21st/22nd of December.

Thank you in advance for your support x

List of Essentials:
Tooth brushes
Tooth paste
Deoderants
Shampoo
Shower gels
Wipes
Small packs of tissues
Band aids
Hats, scarves, gloves
Socks and underwear
Crisps
Chocolate
Small bottles of water/juices
Sleeping bags

I would like everyone to know that I was not approached by PATH to do this collection, I just felt an urge to give back and after watching TV over the weekend, seeing people in tents or on the streets broke my heart. Whatever their circumstances, however they ended up there, they are human just like you an me and the deserve to be looked after and to be seen. Every little helps and the supplies we gather as a community will go a long way. PATH Portlaoise Action to Homelessness relys on people just like you an me to fulfill the amazing work they do. By just providing a small portion of your Christmas spend you can help someone.

Please note that any money raised on the go fund me page will be used to buy supplies with full transparency. The total raised will be supported by receipts and proof of purchases.

Feel free to share my posts and PM me.
