St Vincent de Paul Hampers
“Kindness costs nothing, but it is priceless to those who need it”
The Student Council members in Dunshaughlin Community College were absolutely delighted with the response to their 2015 December Food Collection for St Vincent de Paul. It was a fantastic achievement to have collected so much food. We extend a massive thank you to all staff and students, and their parents....and in particular to the Council members who delivered the food to the Committee members in the pouring rain! You all gave so generously to this worthy cause, and it was much appreciated.
The hampers will be distributed by the St. Vincent de Paul, to local families in the few days before Christmas. Well done to all the students who gave of their time and energy and enthusiasm, to make the collection such a resounding success. A particular work of thanks to all the teachers, to the Special Needs Assistants, and to the Administration staff Sheila, Imelda and Deirdre, who all encouraged students to donate food items. Special thanks to staff member Mr TommyLynch who kindly donated the funds raised from his beautiful handmade Christmas decorations to this cause. Many thanks also to Mr Foley, Ms Bennett and Ms Byrne for their ongoing support of this cause and for donating substantial funding to boost the donations. It is great to see that the spirit of generosity and of kindness is still very much alive, both in our school and in our community.
