Luas have teamed up with Inner City Helping Homeless to launch a Christmas Shoe Box Appeal.

Last year they collected, and distributed, a total of 3,000 shoe boxes and this year they're hoping for 5,000. 

Thinking of ways you can help the less-fortunate this Christmas? This is it. 

Christmas is a time where a lot of us indulge and spend more than we normally would both buying gifts for loved ones and treating ourselves. But for some people it's the roughest, toughest and coldest time of the year.  

So why not do your bit and grab a few of the following things to put in a shoe box for Dublin's homeless this Christmas...

  • Socks
  • Underwear
  • Tooth paste/tooth brush
  • Roll on deodorant
  • Shower gel and shampoo
  • Hand and body lotion
  • Chocolate or sweets
  • Hygiene products

It couldn't be easier to get your hands on these bits 'n' bobs and to put them in a shoe box and wrap 'em up – you'll make someone's Christmas. 

If you wish to donate drop your shoe boxes to the Connolly Luas Stop on Thursday 8 December, between 7AM and 7PM.
