Transdev & Inner City Helping Homeless Partner Up For Homeless Appeal

Transdev Ireland have partnered up again this year with Inner City Helping Homeless  for the Christmas Shoe Box Appeal 2016.

Last year was the first time Transdev Ireland teamed up with Inner City Helping Homeless and ran the very successful event to collect shoe boxes for the homeless at Christmas time.

Shoe boxes were kindly donated by Transdev staff, companies and the public alike, whilst food and haircuts were provided to homeless people on the day. The shoe boxes were distributed by Inner City Helping Homeless, directly to people on the streets at night time and through the numerous shelters across Dublin City.

This year Transdev Ireland wish to do the same again but even bigger with more shoeboxes. Last year a total of 3,000 shoe boxes were collected. The aim this year is to collect over 5,000.

In 2016, the number of families left homeless has increased (almost 1,000 families in Dublin alone). If you wish to donate please drop in your shoe boxes to Connolly Luas Stop, Thursday 8th December, between 7am-7pm.

Below is a suggested list of contents for the shoe boxes:

  • Socks
  • Underwear
  • Tooth paste / Tooth brush
  • Roll on Deodorant
  • Shower Gel / Shampoo
  • Hand / Body Lotion
  • Chocolate / Sweets
  • Female Hygiene Products

Please, no aerosols, hand sanitiser, mouth wash, razors, perfume or after-shave.
