My Personal Message

Traditionally, we have drawn from both the nationwide St Vincent de Paul Christmas food and toy appeals, delivering to over 200 families each Christmas. Last year , thanks to our fundraising appeal, we distributed toy and gift vouchers in November and food vouchers in December, we intend to do the same again this year. Many people remarked to us that they missed the excitement of the gifts and food bags we normally distribute as it was part of the build up to their Christmas. The number of requests received has grown significantly since Covid. People who were already marginalised have been most severely impacted by Covid. We appreciate any donation received, we monitor and assess all requests and all of the money raised goes entirely to the people we support.

St Audoen’s Christmas Appeal

Date: 25 December 2021

We are an inner city conference of 8 members covering the South Inner cityarea. We work with people when they are in arrears with rent, electricity or gas. We support people with food bags from FEAD(Fund for European Aid to the most deprived), We promote and support education, especially third level either degree or post Leaving Cert courses. While we help people return to education or training we also support the local primary chool and help parents with expenses for secondary school . We meet weekly and review each case individually before committing any support, we currently hold our meetings through Zoom. We are also unable to visit people in their homes but now meet them outdoors. This is challenging both for us and the people we support. Lockdown and the pandemic generally has affected the people we serve in many different ways , some have been left waiting for medical treatment and access to services, others have experienced mental health difficulties, drug and alcohol problems and very many are struggling to pay rent and utility bills. The number of requests we have received has grown significantly since Covid.
