Renault Ireland has teamed up with social support charity Crosscare to provide food and other important supplies to those in need this Christmas.
A fleet of five Renault vans travelled around Dublin and Wicklow earlier this week to collect donations of non-perishable items such as tinned food, soft drinks, cereals and toiletries.
Twenty Renault Ireland staff spent a full day packaging the donations, which will be delivered by Crosscare to people in local communities in the run-up to the festive season. The Crosscare team usually delivers 100 packages a week, but with the help of the Renault team, they delivered 600 packages in one day.
Crosscare is a social support agency which provides a range of social care, community and youth work services across the Dublin Archdiocese. They provide 500,000 meals to those in need and continue to play a significant role in the provision of services to people affected by poverty in the Dublin area. Currently they employ over 500 staff with some 1,500 of volunteers in locations throughout the greater Dublin area and Wicklow.
Karla Clifford, brand communications manager of Renault Ireland, is delighted to be able to support such a “worthy cause and help to highlight the amazing work that Crosscare does all year round, but especially at Christmas”.
“We hope this donation will make a difference in the lives of families in need around Dublin and beyond this Christmas.”
