The Holiday Season and Christmas is a joyous and magical time of year, but, it can also be a challenging and worrying time for many individuals and families who are facing the prospect of a bleak, difficult Christmas and beyond.
This Christmas Food Appeal, which is in aid of St. Vincent De Paul, will go some way to easing the hardship faced by many in Ireland today.
St. Vincent De Paul offers direct assistance that is non-judgemental and based on the need of the individual or family.
In addition they provide a wide range of services for vulnerable people.
“Our goal is to fight poverty in all its forms through the practical assistance to people in need.”
