There’s A “Fill a Xmas Truck” Event Happening To Help The Homeless

Everyone can do a little bit.

Christmas is a good time to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves.

Tomorrow, Thursday the 12th of December, Inner City Helping Homeless are organising a “Fill a Xmas Truck” event in Mountjoy Square Park in Dublin 1.

The aim of the event is to provide shoeboxes to the homeless.

How to take part? It’s simple. Wrap a shoebox, mark it male or female and fill it with the likes of:

  • Hats
  • Scarves
  • Gloves
  • Underwear
  • Socks
  • Toiletries *No aerosols, perfumes, aftershaves, mouthwash or hand sanitizers
  • Christmas Card
  • Chocolate

You can also donate a shoebox to a homeless child this Christmas, just make sure to specify on the box that it’s for child (include an age range) and whether it’s for a boy or a girl.

Some of things you can include are:

  • A small toy
  • Book
  • Hat
  • Gloves
  • Scarves
  • Card
  • McDonald’s voucher
  • Smyths voucher
