People Of Dublin Urged To Help The Homeless This Winter


The people of Dublin are being urged to do their bit for the homeless over the winter season.

Transdev Ireland, the company which operates the Luas, has launched their Christmas Shoe Box Appeal – it’s hoping to fill a tram with gifts for the city’s homeless this year.

Last year 3,000 shoe boxes were collected and this year, Transdev says it hopes to hit about the 5,000 number.

The collection point will be at Connolly Station on Thursday December 8.

And all boxes will be distributed by Inner City Helping Homeless.
