HELP THE HOMELESS TODAY
Of all times to be homeless, Christmas for many is the hardest. The number of homeless people in Ireland has risen above 8,000. All proceeds will go to three amazing charities: Focus Ireland, Peter McVerry Trust and Home Again. With your help these charities will help tackle homelessness in Ireland.
The 38th Belvedere College SJ Annual Sleep-Out takes place this month. Normally, 60 students spend 3 days and 2 nights sleeping out at the GPO on O'Connell Street to raise much needed funds in aid of three very deserving charities working to combat homelessness; Focus Ireland, Peter McVerry Trust and Home Again. We are always grateful for the support of Belvedere past pupils who join us for their own sleep out at the Bank of Ireland on College Green.
Due to Covid-19, this is the second year that students will be unable to sleepout on O'Connell street and instead they will take on the challenge in their own back gardens. We have managed to increase the number of students taking part to 100, and the students will sleep out on Sat Dec 4th and Sat Dec 18th creating awareness about the ongoing issue of homelessness in Ireland and how our three charity partners are working to combat this issue. In the spirit of Christmas we're asking you to be generous and supportive of the cause by donating whatever you can.
