PICS: This LUAS Tram Is Being Filled With Presents For The Homeless


A LUAS tram at Connolly Station is being packed full of Christmas presents for Dublin’s homeless today. 

Transdev and Inner City Helping Homeless have come together to organise the gift drive that will provide rough sleepers in the city with much needed essentials such as toiletries. 

Last year’s drive saw over 3,000 shoeboxes filled with gifts donated by the public, and this year they are hoping to reach 5,000 donations.

They’re off to an amazing start, with 1,500 donations being contributed by 9.30am this morning.

People are AMAZING.

There’s still time to help, simply fill a shoebox with supplies and drop it off at the Connolly Luas stop until 7pm this evening.

You’ll find a list of suggested thing to donate here.
