Christmas Voucher and Basics Appeal
November 1, 2019 - December 29, 2019
Our annual Christmas Voucher and Basics Appeal helps us to provide practical support to the individuals and families accessing our services at a time of year that can be particularly difficult for them. This is only made possible thanks to the willingness of the wider community who continue to step up in support of those who need our help.
This year, thanks to ongoing support from wonderful initiatives such as Bia and Food Cloud, we will not be actively seeking food donations.
Instead, we are appealing to the people of Galway and beyond to donate a voucher for a supermarket, toy shop, local butcher, or heat/fuel merchant. The practicality of a gift like this enables us to provide extra support to an individual or family experiencing homelessness that can help relieve them of some of financial pressures they may be facing. It also offers them the dignity of being able to provide something for themselves or their families that others may take for granted.
No amount is too small, and every voucher will be used effectively and transparently to help make a difference to the people we work with.
At this time of year, we also have an increased demand for items such as toiletries and warm clothes. Items such as shower gels, shampoo, deodorants, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shaving foam, jumpers, socks, underwear, and bed linen can provide real practical support to an individual or family facing homelessness at this time of year.
