Dublin Simon Community Voucher Appeal

Dublin Simon Community annual appeal in collaboration with Localise and Presentation Community College Terenure 

Every year, UCD, in collaboration with (opens in a new window)Localise and (opens in a new window)Presentation Community College Terenure organise a care package appeal for the rough sleepers of (opens in a new window)Dublin Simon Community. In 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the usual appeal was not possible. The wonderful Transition Year students in Terenure Presentation Community College undertaking their Localise volunteering programme still wanted to do something to help. Taking the lead from the rough sleepers team of Dublin Simon Community, the suggestion was that people can donate vouchers to people experiencing homelessness this Christmas. We were blown away by the response from the UCD community and the staff and students of Presentation Community College. Over €3500 worth of vouchers were donated to the Dublin Simon Community rough sleepers team, and will be given to people experiencing homelessness this Christmas. A huge thank you to everyone who donated a voucher, your support and generosity is so very much appreciated.
