This year in Scoil Mhuire we want to try and help the homeless in our local community. We have decided to call this “12 Days of Christmas Homeless Appeal”.

Each class will have a box in the class room and we will ask if children can bring in items to put into the box for donation. Even if each child can bring in one item this will make a huge difference to people living on the streets this Christmas.

Below is a list of items that are in demand:

Sleeping bags

Rucksacks / Backpacks you may have lying around at home.

Gloves, Hats, Scarfs.

Warm socks.

Underwear for both men & women

Toiletries

Shower gels

Shampoo

Razors

Shaving gel

Ladies personal items.

Deodorant

Wipes

Food Items

We would often buy fresh meat & cook from home, so vouchers are great to buy perishable goods, vouchers from any of the super markets are great, like, Aldi, Lidl, Tescos, Dunnes Stores, Super Valu.

Tea

Coffee

Sugar

Crisps

Biscuits

Cakes/buns

Chocolates/ chocolate bars/ Sweets

Tinned fruit

Custard

Jelly

Trifle sponge

Tinned cream.

Any kind of Christmas treats will be good
