Archbishop Martin is seeking practical support for this years Annual Parish Food Appeal which is on December 2nd and 3rd for the Crosscare Foodbanks.
Crosscare work with many individuals and families throughout the Archdiocese who are struggling to make ends meet. The Food Banks provide support with essential food and household items.
This year we are asking that collections be held on one weekend only. This will allow us to distribute hampers in good time for Christmas to hundreds of families.
We have identified items that are most needed at this time: These include
- Shampoo & Hygiene Products
- Tinned meats
- Seasonal Biscuits
- Cleaning Products
Those parishes who are planning to run the Food Appeal can contact Crosscare (contact details below) to make any necessary local arrangements.
Where possible, Parishes are asked to consider delivering items collected directly to their nearest Crosscare Foodbank.
Foodbanks are operating in the following areas:
- Dun Laoghaire
A flyer with a list of suitable items for donation is attached for printing and distribution.
